Friday 19-April-2024


At least 50,000 Palestinian worshipers performed Friday prayer at the Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem, despite Israeli restrictions.

According to the Islamic Endowments Department in Jerusalem, around 50,000 Muslims performed the Friday prayer at the holy shrine.

Tens of thousands of worshipers headed to the holy site since the morning hours to perform Friday prayer.

A large contingent of Israeli police was deployed at the entrances, surroundings, and alleys of the city, as well as at the external gates of the Aqsa Mosque.

Earlier on Friday, Hamas Movement called for mass mobilization at Aqsa Mosque starting from Friday until next Monday, “to confront and thwart the enemy’s plans.”

“We call on our Palestinian people across the West Bank, Jerusalem, and the 1948 occupied territories to mobilize and make their way to the blessed Aqsa Mosque starting from Friday prayer until next Monday, to protect and defend it, and to thwart the Zionist enemy’s plans.. to slaughter animals in its courtyards next Sunday and Monday.”

The Movement also hailed the masses of Palestinians in the West Bank, the 1948 occupied territories, and Jerusalem, who are “the first line of defense for the Muslims’ first qibla and the third of the Two Holy Mosques.”

Hamas also called on the Arab and Islamic nation and the free people all over the world to activate all forms of solidarity and support for Jerusalem, Aqsa, and Gaza Strip.
