Record Turnout: 60,000+ Palestinians Gather at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem for Eid Prayer

Reported by the Palestinian news agency WAFA, Palestinian worshippers gathered at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem on Wednesday to perform the Eid al-Fitr prayer. Despite Israeli restrictions, the faithful made their way to the Old City in Israeli-occupied Jerusalem since the early morning hours to observe the Eid prayer.

According to the Islamic Endowments Department in Jerusalem, some individuals who were forcibly removed from Al-Aqsa by Israeli authorities resorted to performing the prayer in the streets surrounding the mosque. This display of devotion underscores the resilience of the Palestinian community amidst ongoing challenges and obstacles.

WAFA’s report highlights the determination of over 60,000 Palestinian worshippers who defied Israeli restrictions to participate in this significant religious observance. The gathering at Al-Aqsa Mosque serves as a testament to the deep spiritual significance of the site and the enduring commitment of Palestinians to their faith despite adversity.
