HeadlineApr 05, 2024

Israeli authorities have been restricting access to the holy site for Palestinians throughout Ramadan. Today also marks “Al-Quds Day,” an annual event to express solidarity with Palestinians and opposition to Israeli occupation. Peaceful protests and other actions are taking place around the world, including in Pakistan, Yemen, Jordan and the occupied West Bank.
