Israel allowed 1,500 Palestinians from the blockaded Gaza Strip with permits to pray at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied East Jerusalem during the Eid al-Adha holiday.

It's the first time Israel has allowed Palestinians from Gaza to visit Islam's third holiest site since Hamas took control of the strip in 2007.
