Approximately 45,000 worshippers performed Friday Prayer at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, according to the Islamic Endowments Department in Jerusalem.
This number was recorded despite the strict military measures imposed by the Israeli Occupation authorities at the gates and entrances of the Old City of occupied Jerusalem.
The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) deployed soldiers across the city and the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Mosque, who checked worshipers' IDs and prevented dozens from entering the mosque.
