200,000+ worshippers perform Eid Al-Fitr prayer at Al-Aqsa
Defying all Israeli measures and arbitrary policies to limit the Palestinians’ movement on the eve of Eid Al-Fitr, more than 200,000 worshippers flock to Al-Aqsa Mosque to perform the Eid prayer.
More than 200,000 worshipers performed the Eid Al-Fitr prayer today, Monday, at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.
After the prayer ended, the worshippers listened to the Eid sermon by Al-Aqsa Mosque preacher Sheikh Muhammad Salim, who highlighted the necessity of continuous presence and stationing at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, in order to repel the suspicious and dangerous plans that the Israeli occupation seeks to impose on the Mosque.
Sheikh Salim stressed that Al-Aqsa Mosque is a red line, and our Palestinian people or the Islamic nation across the world cannot allow its desecration or the violation of its sanctity.
Large crowds of worshippers exchanged congratulations, and others distributed sweets toys to children in the courtyard of the Dome of the Rock.

On April 22, thousands of Palestinians performed the third Friday prayer during the holy month of Ramadan at Al-Aqsa Mosque despite strict Israeli occupation restrictions, with the Palestinian Ministry of Islamic Endowments saying that more than 150,000 worshipers participated in Friday prayers.
Earlier, Al Mayadeen's correspondent in occupied Palestine reported that the Israeli occupation forces assaulted Palestinian women that had been stationed in Al-Aqsa Mosque in a bid to protect it against attacks from Israeli settlers and stormings.

Palestinian factions called on Palestinians to revolt in defense of Al-Aqsa Mosque and in support of those stationed in it who were subjected to the violence and oppression of the Israeli occupation.
Still, despite the oppression, arbitrary measures, and violence, the Islamic Endowments Department in occupied Al-Quds revealed Wednesday that about 250,000 worshipers are celebrating the 27th night of the month of Ramadan - known as Laylat Al-Qadr - in the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Israeli occupation police closed off exits from the 300 checkpoints near Beit Lahm in the south of the occupied West Bank, in the face of those returning from Al-Aqsa after commemorating Laylat Al-Qadr.
