Palestinians return to prayers at Al-Aqsa Thursday: officials

Palestinians returned to pray at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque on Thursday afternoon for the first time in nearly two weeks, its authorities said, after Israel removed remaining new security measures.

“The Islamic religious authorities in Jerusalem call on Palestinians to enter the Al-Aqsa mosque to perform the afternoon prayer,” an official of the Waqf, the Islamic endowments authority which runs the mosque, told reporters.
