65,000 Palestinians perform Friday prayer at Al-Aqsa

Tens of thousands of Palestinians arrived in Al-Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Al-Quds and performed Friday prayer in its courtyards amid strict Israeli measures.

Al-Quds sources said that 65,000 Muslim worshipers performed Friday prayer at the holy shrine.


Since the early hours of the morning, the Israeli police were deployed in the streets of Occupied Al-Quds and prevented hundreds of worshipers from the West Bank from accessing the Mosque to perform prayers. 


During the Friday sermon, the preacher of Al-Aqsa Mosque, Sheikh Muhammad Sarandah, stressed that protecting the holy shrine in light of the growing Israeli attacks is a top priority for all Muslims all over the world.


He further stressed the importance of the Palestinian prisoners' issue for all Muslims.


Sheikh Muhammad Sarandah concluded by calling for intensifying Palestinian presence at Al-Aqsa.


Earlier in the morning, thousands performed dawn prayer at the holy site despite Israeli restrictions.


Since the early hours of dawn, thousands of Palestinians gathered at the gates of the Al-Aqsa Mosque on their way to attend the dawn prayer, confirming the Palestinians’ spiritual links to the holy site.
