Israeli police prevent women from entering al-Aqsa

June 2, 2014 4:52 P.M. (Updated: June 2, 2014 4:52 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Israeli police prevented dozens of women from entering the al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Monday.

Witnesses told Ma’an that Israeli police at the entrances of al-Aqsa prevented some 200 women from entering the mosque. The officers insisted that each woman deposit her identity card before she went inside, though they knew the IDs had been seized by police since Sunday evening.

One of the worshippers said that the police would not let them enter al-Aqsa until they get their Identification cards from al-Qashla police station near Jaffa gate.

The women pointed out that the police station had refused to give them back their cards on Sunday.

“We tried to enter by showing the card that was given to us a day before by the police, but they refused and insisted that we go to al-Qashla and get our identification cards,” one worshiper said.

Women gathered at gates surrounding the mosque chanting “Allahu Akbar” while the Israeli police cursed them and pushed some of them away.
