Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY - On Monday evening, the Israeli occupation police raided the Bab al-Rahma prayer hall in Al-Aqsa Mosque while the call to Isha' prayer was being made, and prevented the muezzin from completing the call to prayer, citing the presence of a celebration in Al-Buraq Square.
Eyewitness reported that Israeli occupation police raided Bab al-Rahma prayer hall wearing their shoes, and threw a number of Qurans on the ground.
As officers from the occupation police cut the wires of the loudspeakers in Al-Aqsa Mosque, this resulted in the call to Isha’ prayer being raised solely inside the Qibli prayer hall.
Furthermore, the police prevented many young men from reaching the Bab al-Rahma prayer hall as they were stationed near it prior to the Maghrib call to prayer.
Palestinian public figures and activists urged citizens to perform on Tuesday the Maghrib and Isha' prayers at the Bab al-Rahma prayer hall in Al-Aqsa Mosque, as a means to defend and protect it from the occupation's schemes.
On Tuesday Israeli occupation police stormed the Bab al-Rahma prayer hall in Al-Aqsa Mosque for the second time in two days, causing chaos and confiscating its contents.
In the meantime, the occupation soldiers stationed themselves today at the entrances to the Old City, where they detained several citizens and young people, checked their IDs, and prohibited non-residents from entering.
