BETHLEHEM  — Israeli police raided the Haram al-Sharif compound late Wednesday, forcing worshipers performing late night prayers to leave, official news agency Wafa reported.

Witnesses said the Imam leading the prayers was arrested, while the compound was closed until dawn. Young men faced restrictions on entering Al-Aqsa to pray on Thursday morning, they added.

Meanwhile, a Mosque guard told Ma’an that more than twenty settlers entered the grounds of the Haram al-Sharif overnight Wednesday, accompanied by Israeli forces.

Nearly 100,000 Muslim worshippers poured into al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem’s Old City for the first Friday prayers of the holy month of Ramadan, an Israeli police spokesman said.

Jews revere the compound as the site of their Biblical Temple. Surviving foundations of its Western Wall are now a focus of prayer.

    The unbelievers will always try to pull away the believers from the true path. The unbelievers will always be unsuccessful in their efforts. The unbelievers cannot accept the true religion, Islam, just because of their arrogance and haughtiness. The people who are not on the true path will try to not let the believers (Muslims) pray peacefully but they will never succeed in their efforts. Think about it. Why wouldn’t you let Muslims pray peacefully. The only true religion is Islam. Check out the facts yourself.

    These people are terrifies as soon they see few Muslims coming together in one place.
