GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces imposed restrictions on Palestinian worshipers entering the al-Aqsa Mosque on Friday, a local group said.

"Israeli forces turned Jerusalem into a military base and imposed restrictions on worshipers entering the al-Aqsa compound for the second Friday in a row," the al-Aqsa foundation said in a statement.

Men under 50 were not allowed to enter for Friday prayers and Israeli police set up barricades in the Old City and around Damascus Gate.
