13,000 Palestinian worshipers were allowed to perform Friday prayer in the Aqsa Mosque, as Israeli police banned the entry of hundreds of people into the holy site.

The Islamic Endowments Department affirmed that only 13,000 worshipers were allowed in as Israeli police banned the entry of hundreds of people into the holy site for the 17th consecutive Friday prayer.

Ahead of the Friday prayer, the Israeli police blocked several roads leading to the Old City of Jerusalem and hindered the movement of Palestinian citizens.

Earlier on Friday, hundreds of Jerusalemites performed the Fajr prayer at Aqsa despite the Israeli military restrictions at its gates.

A group of Jerusalemite campaigners and activists earlier called for performing the Great Fajr prayer on Friday at Al-Aqsa Mosque’s courtyards and staying at the holy site to demand lifting the siege imposed on it.

In the same context, the Hamas Movement has called on Palestinians to take part in the massive rallies to kick off on Friday from various and central mosques in Occupied Jerusalem and the West Bank in support of Gaza and the resistance.
