Al-Aqsa Mosque

Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third most holiest site of Islam that was built in 705 CE. It is located at the Old City of Jerusalem atop a Temple Mount called Al Aqsa Compound. Over the past years, it became the site for frequent skirmishes between the Palestinians and Jews, with the most recent occurring during this year’s holy month of Ramadan. Land disputes between the Palestinians and Israelis in the eastern Jerusalem is the main cause for these clashes.
