70,000 Worshipers Perform Friday Prayer at the Aqsa Mosque

Tens of thousands of Muslim worshipers reached the Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem and performed the Friday prayer in its courtyards amid strict Israeli measures.

The Islamic Endowments Department reported that more than 70,000 worshipers performed the Friday prayer in the holy site despite the Israeli restrictions imposed at the gates and entrances of the Old City.

The Israeli police forces set up dozens of roadblocks, conducted extensive searches and checks on Palestinians and their ID cards, and prevented many of them from reaching the holy Islamic site.

Earlier Friday, the Israeli municipal authorities closed several streets in Occupied Jerusalem, restricting Palestinian movement.

The Israeli restrictions came in preparation for the annual Jerusalem marathon held today in Occupied Jerusalem.
