JERUSALEM : Israeli police on Friday imposed tough entry restrictions on the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, leaving it almost empty.
A large number of Israeli police units deployed in Jerusalem's Old City and erected barriers in its alleyways.
The Islamic Waqf Department said in a statement that Israeli police only allow worshippers above the age of 70 to enter the mosque.
Eyewitnesses confirmed to Anadolu that the Old City area resembles a "military barracks" where Israeli police refuse entry to those who do not live there.
