Thousands of Palestinians took to the streets in a large rally in Gaza City on Friday, in support and solidarity with Palestinians at Al-Aqsa Mosque, which was stormed by Israeli occupation forces early Friday. 

The protesters marched and raised the Palestinian flag as well as pictures of Al-Aqsa Mosque, while chanting slogans in support of Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem.

“Today we gather in Gaza to announce our support for Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque and to mourn our martyrs,” Khaled Al-Batsh, the coordinator of the Committee for National and Islamic Forces, said.

“We declare our support for Jerusalem and its people and reaffirm our rejection of all attempts to impose a Jewish identity on Jerusalem.” 

Al Batsh also called on the Arab League and all Muslim scholars to take their part in defending Al-Aqsa.
