Bulk363OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-Tens of thousands of Palestinian worshipers performed Friday prayers in al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem on the fourth Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.

Israeli authorities imposed since morning hours tight restrictions on the entry of Palestinians to the occupied city, allowing only women and men above 40 years of age to reach the holy shrine.

Palestinian youths in the West Bank were forced to cross Israel’s apartheid wall to pray at al-Aqsa, challenging teargas bombs and rubber bullets fired by Israeli forces.

Over 280,000 people managed to attend the Friday prayers amid very tight military restrictions at Israeli checkpoints erected surrounding the occupied city.

During the Friday prayers sermon, al-Aqsa Mosque preacher Mohamed Salim hailed all those who succeeded in intensifying their presence in the holy shrine during Ramadan despite Israeli restrictions.
