The Islamic Waqf in Jerusalem, the Jordan-run authority responsible for the holy site, confirmed that over 40,000 worshippers managed to attend the prayers. However, many faced obstacles as Israeli forces imposed stringent measures, including assaulting worshippers both on their way to Al-Aqsa Mosque and as they were leaving. Dozens were prevented from entering to perform the Eid prayers.

In the early hours, Israeli occupation forces entered the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, where they checked the IDs of those inside, disrupted the movement of worshippers, and barred a significant number of young men from entering, forcing them to pray outside the mosque gates. WAFA correspondents reported that these actions created significant challenges for those wishing to observe the sacred ritual.

Al-Aqsa Mosque holds profound religious significance for Muslims worldwide, and Eid al-Adha, the "Festival of Sacrifice," is one of the most important Islamic holidays. The large turnout at Al-Aqsa despite the restrictions underscores the dedication of worshippers and the importance of the site in Islamic faith.

This incident is the latest in a series of tensions surrounding access to Al-Aqsa Mosque. The presence and actions of Israeli forces at the site have frequently been sources of friction, with many Palestinians and Muslim worshippers accusing the Israeli government of attempting to assert control over the holy site.

Despite the challenges posed by Israeli restrictions, the successful gathering of over 40,000 worshippers at Al-Aqsa Mosque for Eid al-Adha prayers highlights the resilience and steadfastness of the Muslim community in Jerusalem. The event underscores ongoing tensions but also the enduring significance of Al-Aqsa Mosque as a center of faith and worship for Muslims globally. (ILKHA)
