Wednesday, the Israeli Occupation forces (IOF) imposed restrictions on Muslims entering Al-Aqsa Mosque, for the second day in a row.

The IOF prevented worshipers from entering the mosque to perform the dawn prayer, and those under the age of 50 were prohibited from entering the Old City.

However, the worshipers performed the dawn prayer at the closest place they could reach to Al-Aqsa Mosque, while IOF were deployed at the gates of the mosque and the Old City.

At the same time, Israeli Occupation settlers performed prayers and religious rituals for the Jewish Sukkot holiday, in front of the gates of Al-Aqsa Mosque while the IOF provided them with protection, according to eyewitnesses.
