Palestine: Thousands of Worshippers Perform Eid Prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque despite Zionist Occupation Measures

Thousands of Palestinian performed early morning Eid Al-Fitr prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque, despite the Israeli occupation measures aimed at restricting the access of worshippers.

The worshippers showed keenness on attending the prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque amid hopes to see an imminent ceasefire in Gaza.

After performing the prayer, the worshippers listened to the Eid sermon which warned against the Zionist occupation’s scheme aimed to be imposed on the mosque.

The sermon also confirmed that Al-Aqsa Mosque is a red line, stressing that the Palestinians and all Muslims will never allow the desecration of the Holy Shrine.

The worshippers also exchanged felicitations and distributed candies on the occasion.


Despite the ongoing aggression and displacement, the people of Gaza City are determined to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, with vendors selling sweets and parents buying clothes for their children to maintain some sense of normalcy during the devastating war.
