Thousands of Muslims gathered at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound to pray on the last Friday of Ramadan in the Old City of Jerusalem.
The vast majority of people seen at the mosque were Palestinian Muslims from nearby cities or refugee camps, who had to endure the high temperatures, above 39 degrees celsius (102 fahrenheit), that the region is currently experiencing, with water spraying and hoses being used to help the attendees keep cool.
Israeli security forces were heightened throughout the city on Friday and only men over 40, children under 14 and women were allowed into the city to take part in the prayers.

By Noam Chomsky and Ilan Pappé
Operation Protective Edge, Israel’s most recent assault on Gaza, left thousands of Palestinians dead and cleared the way for another Israeli land grab.
The need to stand in solidarity with Palestinians has never been greater. Noam Chomsky and Ilan Pappé, two leading voices in the struggle to liberate Palestine, discuss the road ahead for Palestinians and how the international community can pressure Israel to end its human rights abuses against the people of Palestine.
This urgent and timely book offers hope and a way forward for all those committed to the struggle to liberate Palestine.
On Palestine is the sequel to Chomsky and Pappé’s acclaimed book Gaza in Crisis.
