Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Over 27000 worshipers performed Eid prayers today at Al Aqsa mosque.
The old city saw large numbers of worshipers, who have flocked from all over occupied Palestine since the very early hours of Friday despite the Israeli strict restrictions.
The spokesman for the Palestinian government, Ibrahim Melhem, had announced that the prayers would be performed considering the WHO guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Israeli authorities had on Thursday arrested 6 worshipers from the holy mosque during a settlers’ raid under police protection.
Extremist terrorist “Temple mount” groups had called for mass raids into the holy mosque on the day of Arafa to mark the so-called day of “destruction of the temple”. 20 groups of Jewish fanatics stormed Al Aqsa mosque under police guardship.
Israeli police also attacked women, who were performing prayers at the holy mosque.
