JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of Palestinians performed Friday prayers in the streets leading to the al-Aqsa mosque after Israeli forces prevented those under 50 years old from entering the compounds of al-Aqsa.

Three Palestinians were detained while attempting to enter the compound.

Israeli forces were in neighborhoods near al-Aqsa and the Old City of Jerusalem, where they put up barriers, shut the roads and set off a “heat balloon” to monitor the streets.

Worshipers performed their prayers in the neighborhoods of Wadi Joz, Herod's Gate and Damascus Gate, Salah al-Din Street and the alleyways of the Old City.

Israeli forces at Council Gate and the Chain Gate assaulted worshipers and pepper-sprayed them when they started pushing each other at the gates.

Israeli police prevented participants in a funeral from entering the compound; instead the guard of the mosque took the casket inside of the mosque.

Standing around watching everbody praying. I understand they doing what they told, but if I was one of the soildier I would look real stupid standing around looking at people praying. That's an army that has nothing else to do with their time.
