Israel To Reopen Al Aqsa Mosque Friday

THE LEVANT  – Israeli authorities made the decision to reopen the Al Aqsa Mosque for Muslim worshippers on Friday.

Israel blocked access to the Al Aqsa mosque on Thursday after clashes erupted following the death of a Palestinian suspect wanted for killing a right-wing Jewish activist. While Israel previously restricted access to Palestinians under the age of 65 multiple times over the last two months, the Al Aqsa Mosque was completely closed for the first time since 2000.

Police said Muslim men above the age of 50 and women of all ages may attend Friday’s weekly prayers.

Palestinians had condemned the closure and called it a “declaration of war.”
