300 Gazans head to Jerusalem to pray in Aqsa mosque

Aug. 28, 2015 10:45 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 28, 2015 9:33 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip headed to Jerusalem via the Erez crossing to pray in the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Friday.

Buses from across the Gaza Strip transported 300 Gazans over the age of 50 to pray at the holy site.

Weekly access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque by Gazans has become routine since October 2014 when 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.
