Days of Palestine – Jerusalem

On Friday morning, the Israeli occupation forces obstructed the access of worshipers to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and erected military barriers at all entrances to the Old City.

Local sources said that police denied worshipers holding West Bank identity cards from accessing the site, briefly detained some of them and inspected the identity cards of dozens of others before allowing them access to the mosque courtyards.

Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which includes the Dome of the Rock and other mosques, is the third holiest site in Islam.
