Gulf Times - - FRONT PAGE -

About 50,000 Pales­tini­ans per­formed Fri­day prayers at Al Aqsa Mosque, chal­leng­ing the strict mea­sures that the oc­cu­pa­tion has put in place to pre­vent their ac­cess to the mosque. Pales­tine’s Awqaf and Is­lamic Af­fairs Depart­ment in Jerusalem said that Pales­tini­ans had flocked to Al Aqsa Mosque, de­spite the se­vere re­stric­tions im­posed by the oc­cu­pa­tion on the en­try of wor­ship­pers, from searches at gates, check­ing iden­ti­ties, and pre­vent­ing young peo­ple from en­ter­ing.
