Israeli security forces have prevented dozens of Muslims from Palestine from entering the compound of Al-Aqsa mosque in occupied East Jerusalem to perform dawn prayers.

According to Aljazeera, Many worshippers trying to enter the compound on Tuesday were turned away by police, who prevented all but those aged over 60 from entering the site, forcing many Palestinians to perform their dawn prayers in the street.

While United Nations claim that the right to worship is entitled to every human being, this right is violated in Al-Aqsa Mosque and UN remains quiet about the human rights violation by the Israeli occupation.

It is noted that Ban Ki Moon now and then makes a statement expressing concern regarding this as a lip service with no action.

Neither does the Human Rights Ambassador of UN seem to find fault with the human rights violations happening every day in occupied Palestine.
