Bulk344OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-Tens of thousands of Palestinians headed to occupied Jerusalem since the early morning hours to attend the third Friday of Ramadan prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque.

Masses of worshippers made their way to the holy city from the occupied Palestinian territories despite the many restrictions imposed by Israeli police and forces, especially on the entry of young men below the age of 40, many of whom were banned from entering the occupied city by the Israeli forces.

Worshippers had to pass into occupied Jerusalem via military checkpoints as Israeli police beefed up presence around and in the city amid heightened tensions.

 Last Friday, around 200,000 people attended the Friday prayers amid very tight military restrictions throughout occupied Jerusalem.
