Worshipers said that “the police prevented us from visiting Al Aqsa mosque to perform Fajr prayer.”
Also, activists added that the Israeli police arrested Muhammad Taher Jabbarin from Umm Al Fahm and Muhammad Isteiti from occupied Acre while they were on the way to perform Fajr prayer this morning.
The Israeli police and border guards blocked several busses, which were heading towards the holy mosque.
Activists had called for increasing the visits to the holy mosque in order to protect it from settlers, whose raids have recently sharply increased under the protection of Israeli forces.
