A group of Palestinian worshipers, early Friday morning, were brutally attacked by Israeli occupation soldiers who prevented them from reaching the holy Al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied Jerusalem.

Quds News Network (QNN) reporter said thousands of Palestinian Muslims flooded Jerusalem from all around Palestine as well as some from Israel, to perform the Fajr or early morning prayer, in defiance of the harsh Israeli restrictions.

Those who were denied entry to the sacred compound, performed the Fajr prayer between the Hittah and Asbat gates, and then Israeli soldiers pushed the peaceful worshipers out of the old city of Jerusalem, causing elderly worshipers to fall.

Meanwhile, the Israeli police imposed fines on those Palestinians distributing hot drinks and snacks to the worshipers.
