Mosque On Har Habayis Reopens To Muslim Worshipers


The Al-Aqsa mosque on the Har Habayis will reopen to worshippers after the Eid holiday, a statement from its governing body said Tuesday, two months after closing due to the coronavirus.

“The council decided to lift the suspension on worshippers entering the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque after the Eid al-Fitr holiday,” a statement from the Jordan-based Waqf organization said, referring to the three-day holiday expected to begin this weekend.

The mosque was closed in late March for the first time in more than 50 years as part of measures across the globe to stem the spread of the new coronavirus.
