Funeral prayer in absentia held for Morsi at Al-Aqsa Mosque

A funeral prayer in absentia was held at the Al-Aqsa Mosque for Egypt's first democratically elected President Mohammed Morsi, who died Monday during trial.

As Reported by Qods News Agency (Qodsna) The funeral was held after isha, or the night prayers, at the mosque in occupied East Jerusalem's Old City.

 

Meanwhile, Palestinian resistance movement Hamas issued a statement thanking Morsi for his efforts "in serving the

Palestinian cause" and his stance toward the Gaza Strip, following his sudden death.

 

The group, which governs Gaza, said Monday it remembers Morsi's "unforgettable and brave positions and his work to lift its siege."

 

Israel and Egypt imposed a blockade on the Palestinian enclave after Hamas took control in 2007. During Morsi's rule, Cairo eased travel and trade restrictions from its side significantly.

 

Turkey's Religious Affairs Directorate also announced that funeral prayers in absentia would be held Tuesday in mosques across the country to honor Morsi's life and his struggle.

 

Morsi was elected president in 2012 but was ousted in a military coup a year later. The military crushed the Muslim

Brotherhood movement in a major crackdown, arresting Morsi and many others of the group's leaders, who have been in prison undergoing multiple trials ever since the coup.

 

Morsi collapsed in court during one of the trials and died Monday evening.
