Despite the Israeli restrictions and cold weather, thousands of Palestinian worshipers performed the Al-Fajr prayer at Al-Aqsa mosque as part of the “Great Fajr” campaign to pray at the holy sites, the Quds News Network reported.
The worshipers then gathered in the prayer halls of the mosque, confirming their spiritual links to the holy site and rejecting the Israeli systematic Judaization policy.
Every Friday, thousands of Palestinians flock to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the world’s third-holiest site for Muslims. They recite the Holy Quran before performing the Al-Fajr prayer.
The “Great Fajr” campaign was launched for the first time in 2020 and started from the Ibrahimi Mosque in Al-Khalil (Hebron), to stand against Israeli occupation’s violations against the mosque and its attempt to Judaize it, including the repeated raids by colonial Israeli settlers.
There have been calls by Palestinian officials for Muslim worshipers to perform prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque amid aggressive Israeli attacks committed against the mosque.
