Gaza15July7OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office announced on Friday, after an evaluation session held by the Israeli security apparatuses, that the closure of al-Aqsa Mosque will continue until Sunday.

The Israeli authorities closed al-Aqsa Mosque and banned prayer there for the first time since 1969. 

The Israeli police extended on Friday evening the detention of three guards of al-Aqsa Mosque to next Sunday.

A local source reported that the Israeli police released most of the staff of the Islamic Awqaf (endowment) Department who were detained in the morning but extended the detention of the three guards.

Earlier, the Islamic Awqaf Department affirmed that the Israeli police arrested 58 of its employees working at al-Aqsa Mosque and took them to al-Maskubiya detention center after confiscating their mobile phones and beating them.

The Public Relations Department in al-Aqsa Mosque said that a special Israeli force broke into the Mosque's toilets and wreaked havoc in them.

Because of the ban, thousands of Palestinian worshipers were forced to pray outside al-Aqsa Mosque, while the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Mohammad Hussein, was arrested immediately after delivering his Friday sermon.
