TEHRAN (IQNA) – Despite tight security conditions imposed by the Israeli regime and the rainy weather, thousands of Palestinian people held Friday prayers today at the Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound.

 

Sources estimate the number of participants at around 30,000, according to a report by Palestine Today.

This is while Israeli security forces imposed tight security around the old Jerusalem al-Quds and areas leading to the holy mosque.

According to the report, Israeli forces prevented the entry of some Palestinians to the al-Aqsa Mosque while also searching citizens’ personal data-x-items and checking identity cards.

The al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which sits just above the Western Wall plaza, houses both the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Israeli regime occupied the western part of the holy city, which contains the Al-Aqsa Mosque--Islam's third-holiest site--in 1948. In 1967, it overran its eastern that Palestinians want as the capital of their future state.
