200 Palestinians from Gaza pray at Aqsa mosque

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two hundred Palestinians from the Gaza Strip on Friday headed to the Al-Aqsa Mosque to pray, Palestinian liaison officials said.

Buses from Gaza passed through the Erez crossing at dawn carrying the worshipers, who are all over 60 years old.

On Oct. 5, some 500 Palestinians in Gaza prayed at the mosque for the first time since 2007, having been prevented by Israel from traveling to Jerusalem since that time.

The decision to allow Gazans to travel to al-Aqsa was reached part of the ceasefire deal between Palestinian militant groups and Israel that ended the more than 50-day war over summer in which Israeli bombardment killed more than 2,200 Gazans.
