On Tuesday 18th September, the Israeli police centred at the main entrances of al-Aqsa mosque continued to restrict the entry of the Palestinian worshipers to the mosque, as they prevented for three consecutive days, Palestinians whose ages less than 45 from entering the mosque.
The Israeli police put checkpoints near the mosque's main gates to check the Palestinian worshipers IDs.
At the same time, the police allowed settlers and international tourists to enter the mosque from Bab al-Magharbeh gate, with the protection of the Israeli Special Units.
One of the mosque's guards said that the Israeli police, headed by a senior officer, chased after Young Palestinians inside the mosque and detained them near al-Matahara gate, interrogated them about how they entered to the mosque, and after they have failed to take them out of the mosque, the police detained their IDs.
Despite these barriers and restrictions imposed by Israeli police, the Palestinian worshipers were able to enter into the mosque.
