Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Muslim worshipers at Al Aqsa mosque, especially at the Mercy prayer room, were shocked on Friday with an entire patrol that was sent to remove decorations from the Mercy prayer room.
The prayer room was decorated by worshipers celebrating the first anniversary of opening it after years of closure by the Israeli authorities.
The armed patrol removed balloons and decorations before popping them out using knives in a very weird and surrealistic scene, amid the shock and bewilderment of the worshipers.
Thousands of worshipers on Friday had flocked to the holy mosque and performed Friday prayers. Meanwhile, Israeli special forces broke into the Mercy room and started removing decorations, celebrating the first anniversary of opening the prayer room after a 16-year-long closure.
