Thousands of Indonesians participated in massive marches after Friday prayer in response to calls by youth and religious figures as well as by civil society institutions. The marches were held in support of al-Aqsa Mosque and in protest at the Israeli security measures at the Muslims’ third holiest shrine.
The participants roamed the streets of the capital city of Jakarta and Dipok city. Speeches were delivered and performances were presented during the events which called for increasing the support for Occupied Jerusalem and the Palestinian Question.
The Palestinian Da’wa Association in Jakarta affirmed that some mosque committees in the capital city have called for assigning the Friday Khutbah (sermon) for talking about the support of al-Aqsa Mosque and the solidarity with the Jerusalemite people as well as for shedding light on the Israeli violations at the holy site.
