45,000 worshipers perform Friday prayer at Aqsa Mosque

More than 45,000 Palestinian worshipers attended the Friday prayer at the Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Al-Quds, despite the tight Zionist regime’s restrictions.

Since the early morning hours, worshipers from Occupied Al-Quds and cities within the Green Line have been heading to the Aqsa Mosque.


The Zionist regime’s occupation authorities prevented hundreds of West Bankers from reaching the Mosque to perform the prayers.


The mass attendance of worshipers comes amid tight Israeli security measures.


The heavy presence of Israeli police was seen at the entrances, surroundings, and alleys of the Old City in Al-Quds.


During the Friday sermon, al-Aqsa preacher Sheikh Muhammad Salim called for a mass Palestinian presence at the holy site.


Sheikh Salim stressed the importance of the Palestinian presence at the Aqsa Mosque to foil all Zionist regime’s Judaization schemes.


Meanwhile, Palestinian worshipers performed Friday prayers in Solomon's Pools, south of Bethlehem, in protest against the settlers' repeated attacks in the area.
