JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A forty-year-old man died early Monday after falling from the southern wall of the Al-Aqsa compound, witnesses said.

Hassan Suliman Abu Madam, from the largely Bedouin city of Rahat in the Negev, climbed the compound wall and asked a friend to take a picture of him to commemorate Laylat al-Qadr.

Abu Madam fell 30 meters and died instantly. His body was taken to al-Maqased hospital in al-Tur.

Tens of thousands of Palestinian worshipers visited Al-Aqsa mosque on Sunday to mark one of the holiest nights of Ramadan. Many stayed the night in the compound before leaving on Monday.

Laylat al-Qadr marks the anniversary of the night when Muslims believe the Quran was first revealed to the prophet Muhammad.

(This version CORRECTS the age of the victim.)

Blame the Juice for not building a safety rail. A safety rail and a handrail are a cost effective solution to satisfy building code requirements. These will prevent Bedouin and Palestinians falling from great hights from walls.

The only people authorised to construct safety rails within the Al Aksa compound would be the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf
