IOF tightens security ahead of Friday Prayer

Israel closed roadblocks in the West Bank and strengthened security forces in East Jerusalem ahead of Friday's Muslim prayers, which last week ended in stone-throwing and Israeli police storming the al-Aqsa Mosque compound. Palestinians have been protesting an Israeli decision taken in late February to include Jewish-Muslim shrines in the occupied West Bank in a list of "national heritage sites" up for renovation

On Friday last week, youths threw rocks from the "Haram al-Sharif" platform, on which the al-Aqsa Mosque stands, at Jewish worshippers praying at the Wailing Wall underneath the elevated compound

The Israeli police imposed age restrictions on Muslim worshippers, banning the entry of men aged under 50, to avoid rioting by youths
