Protesting against the Israeli desecrations of al-Haram al-Qudsī and al-haram al-Ibrāhīmī, about two thousand demonstrators were detained inside al-Azhar mosque. The security forces locked the gates of the mosque, preventing the protesting congregation from getting outside. The demonstrators denounced the passive stance of Muslim leaders, and called Muslims every where to boycott Israeli and American goods, as well as defend al- Aqsá mosque from the Israel’s constant desecration.
