Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- 40,000 worshipers gathered at Al Aqsa mosque for Friday prayer to protest against the Israeli aggressive actions.
Palestinian activists called to confront the Israeli violations against Al Aqsa and worshipers by gathering at the mosque for Friday prayer in the Friday of “breaking the ban”.
Activists said that “the occupation state wants its existence to be normal and eternal, but Friday should be a day of mobilization.” They also stressed that “the Israeli courts are unauthorized of deciding to close or open anything, and the Israeli police are unauthorized to decide who gets access to the mosque and who does not.”
“The size of Al Aqsa mosque is is 144,000 square metres, and every inch of it is ours. We will never squander the right of every man, woman, child, or elder accessing the mosque,” said the activists.
Hamas called on Palestinians to decamp to Al Aqsa mosque in order to confront the Israeli actions, and stressed on supporting those, who were banned of access to the mosque after the opening of Al Aqsa mosque.
Jerusalemites succeeded to open the mercy gate and its prayer room, which have been closed for 16 years. Arrest and ban of access campaign were launched after that to ban over 130 worshipers of access to the mosque.
