Over 100,000 worshipers perform Eid Al Adha prayer in Al Aqsa mosque

Jerusalem: Over 100 worshipers performed Eid Al Adha prayer in Al Aqsa mosque on the first day of Eid Al Adha on Tuesday.

Thousands of worshipers chanted Takbirs of the first day of Eid. Dozens also performed the Eid prayer near Al Asbat gate after Israeli forces prevented them from entry into the holy mosque.

Palestinian factions, as well as Sheiks and several organizations, had called for performing Eid prayer at Al Aqsa mosque in order to protect it from Israeli settlers.

On the 8th of Dhul Hijjah and on Arafa Day, government-backed settlers raids swept the holy mosque. Meanwhile, Israeli forces attacked worshipers injuring several of them.—(QNN)
