OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Tens of thousands of Palestinian worshipers attended on Thursday morning the Eid of prayers at the Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

The old city’s alleyways were congested with worshippers heading to Islam’s third holiest site the celebrate the Eid and leaving the site after the Eid prayers.

Areas around the Mosque witnessed an intensive Israeli occupation security presence since the early morning hours.

The Imam called, in his Eid sermon, for unity in Palestine and Egypt as disunity only serves the enemy, stressing that the enemy wants to divide and corrupt the Mulims.

The worshipers, who were mostly from Jerusalem and 1948-occupied lands, pitched a tent, which they called Rabea al-Adaweyya tent, in solidarity with the pro-democracy demonstrators in Egypt who are camped at Rabea al-Adaweyya square.
