Tens of thousands of Palestinian worshipers flocked to the Aqsa Mosque to perform the Eid prayers soon after dawn Saturday.

Roads leading to the Old City and the Aqsa Mosque were crammed with worshipers who headed to the holy site despite the Israeli security measures that turned Jerusalem into a garrison.

Israeli security forces closed a number of streets near the Mosque including Bab el-Amoud, which is the main road leading to the Aqsa.

Groups of worshipers celebrated the Gaza steadfastness and victory in face of the Israeli 51 days of barbaric aggression, hailing Hamas and its armed wing for their prominent role in that victory.
