On the 259th day of "Al-Aqsa Flood Operation", the occupation authorities imposed restrictions on the entry of worshipers into Al-Aqsa Mosque to perform Friday prayers, and raids on towns and neighborhoods in the city of Jerusalem continued.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center - Jerusalem explained that the police set up checkpoints and placed iron barriers on the roads leading to Al-Aqsa, before Friday prayers, especially on the Lions Gate road, and determined paths for walking and reaching Al-Aqsa.

The forces were also stationed at the gates of Al-Aqsa and the Old City.

The forces stopped the young men as they were arriving to Al-Aqsa, checked their identities, and prevented some from entering Al-Aqsa.

The forces removed many young men from the vicinity of Al-Aqsa, preventing them from praying and being at its gates.

Worshipers performed Friday prayers at the thresholds of Al-Aqsa, “Al-Mujahideen Road,” after they were prevented from entering the mosque.

The forces arrested two young men from the areas of Lions Gate and King Faisal Gate.

They also arrested the freed prisoner, Majed Al-Jubeh, after the Noon prayer, several days after his release after spending 8 months under administrative detention.

On the other hand, the Secretary of the Fatah movement, Shadi Mtour, turned himself in to prison to serve his 20-day prison sentence “under the pretext of entering a hostile country.”

The forces also arrested a Jerusalemite young man on the King Hussein Bridge during his return to the city of Jerusalem after performing Pilgrimage.
