Israel bars Muslim men under 50 amid protests

Israeli police Friday, said that Muslim men under the age of 50 would not be allowed at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, in an announcement made hours before expected mass protests, Aljazeera reports.

Palestinians are reportedly prepared for demonstrations after the Muslim Friday prayers, over new security measures at the Holy site in East Jerusalem, some days after the deadly shoot out at the compound.

“Entry to the Old City and Temple Mount will be limited to men aged 50 and over. Women of all ages will be permitted, a police statement reads.
