Israel imposes restrictions for Friday prayers at Aqsa

July 18, 2014 1:43 P.M. (Updated: July 19, 2014 1:09 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police imposed restrictions on Palestinian worshipers entering the al-Aqsa Mosque for the third Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.

An Israeli police spokesperson for Arabic media said only men over 50 and women would be allowed to enter the Aqsa compound.

Israeli forces have deployed around the holy compound and in the alleyways of the Old City since early Friday.

For West Bank residents, only men over 50 and women over 40 will be allowed in to pray. Hebron residents are being prohibited from entering for the second Friday in a row.

Palestinians from the West Bank and the Gaza Strip are usually barred from Israel and from East Jerusalem, which Israel occupied in the 1967 Six-Day war and then unilaterally annexed.
