Hundreds of Palestinian children from different Palestinian areas participated in the activities of the 13th Aqsa Child festival that started Saturday morning in the courtyards of the Aqsa Mosque

Hundreds of Palestinian children participated in the event and its activities, especially the drawing contest.

The festival started with a drawing contest, where children embarked on drawing the landmarks of the Aqsa Mosque compound. 

Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, head of the Supreme Islamic Council in Jerusalem, said in a statement that they have to keep their future generations attached to the Aqsa Mosque.

According to Palestinian artist Yousuf al-Rajbi, who participated in the festival, pointed out that the Israeli police prevented the entry of many drawing tools to the Aqsa Mosque.

The festival, for organizers part, is intended to strengthen the Palestinian children's bond with the Aqsa Mosque and to send a strong message to the Israeli occupation that its measures and violations will never succeed in detaching the Palestinians from their Aqsa Mosque.
