Al-Aqsa Mosque to reopen soon

Jerusalem, May 28, 2020 

Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque will reopen to worshippers from May 31 after staying closed for more than two months due to the coronavirus pandemic, the authority responsible for overseeing the city's holy sites said on Wednesday.

Preventive measures will be taken at the entrance of the mosque, Sheikh Omar Al-Kiswani, the director of Al-Aqsa Mosque, announced after a meeting held by the Jordan-run Islamic Waqf Department to discuss the latest measures regarding the mosque.

Meanwhile, authorities will not impose any limit on the number of people allowed to pray inside the mosque.

The mosque was closed off to all worshippers late March amid the novel coronavirus outbreak in Palestinian territories.
