Gaza18Jan2OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-Thousands of worshipers from the West Bank, 1948 Occupied Palestine and Occupied Jerusalem headed to al-Aqsa Mosque on Monday to mark Laylat al-Qadr, one of Ramadan's holiest nights.

Despite Israeli tight restrictions, the number of worshipers exceeded 350,000, according to Islamic Awqaf Department.
