Recently, social media users have circulated a photo claiming to show the worshipers observing “Laylat Al-Qadr” on the eve of Ramadan 27 at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem.
Misbar investigated the circulating photo and found it to be misleading. The photo is old and does not depict worshipers observing “Laylat Al-Qadr” this year. The photo, along with other photos of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, was previously posted by photographer Mohamad Dweik in April 2020, saying that they were taken for his company “Select” in Ramadan 2016.
Observing The Eve of Ramadan 27
According to the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, about 250,000 worshipers held an observation on Wednesday night amid tight measures by the Israeli occupation forces.
The Israeli occupying forces continue to impose tight measures on the entry of worshipers into the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The Israeli occupation had announced that it would apply the same rules that applied on Fridays during Ramadan on worshipers' entry into Al-Aqsa on the eve of Ramadan 27.
