200 Palestinians from Gaza pray at Al-Aqsa Mosque

Jan. 8, 2016 11:30 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 8, 2016 11:30 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip headed to pray in East Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque on Friday, a Palestinian official said.

An official at the Palestinian liaison office told Ma'an that 200 Palestinians over the age of 60 left the Gaza Strip early in the day via the Erez crossing in the northern Gaza Strip to pray at the holy compound.

Worshipers are expected to return back to the Gaza Strip right after Friday prayers.

Weekly access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque by Gazans has become routine since October 2014, when some 500 Palestinians from Gaza prayed at the mosque for the first time since 2007, having been prevented by Israel from traveling to East Jerusalem since that time.
