More than 120,000 Muslim Worshippers Gather at Al Aqsa Mosque for Friday Prayers Despite Restrictions and Threat of Raids

Thousands of Muslims flocked to the Al-Aqsa mosque in occupied Jerusalem for Friday Prayer during the second week of Ramadan, despite the looming threat from the “Israeli” soldiers and the strict measure imposed by the occupation entity against the Palestinians entering the holy mosque. 

According to the Islamic Waqf Department in Jerusalem, more than 120,000 worshippers managed to reach the holy site to perform their prayers in the courtyards of the mosque, which is the third holiest site for Muslims across the globe. 

Around 54 Israeli settlers stormed into Al Aqsa mosque just days before Muslims gathered at the holy site. Despite the mosque being a holy site for Jews too, it has been under raids and attacks a number of times by the “Israeli” forces especially during the holy month of Ramadan.
