While Israeli forces prevent prayers under 40 to al-Aqsa Mosque, Palestinian Muslims enthusiastically held Friday prayer in the holy mosque.
Al-Aqsa mosque, Islam’s third holiest shrine, sits on a tree-lined plateau in the heart of the Old City. It is also the holiest place in Judaism - the venue of two ancient temples, the last destroyed by the Romans.
