Application on behalf of six Muslim women from Gaza seeking to pray at al-Aqsa Mosque on the day of al-Isra and al-Maraj (Prophet Muhammad’s ascension to heaven)
It should be noted that Gisha contacted the authorities on behalf of the same women with a similar request on December 21, 2010, but was met with refusal. A petition filed on the women’s behalf against this refusal was rejected and the appeal in the matter is now pending before the Supreme Court. A hearing is scheduled for July 4, 2012.
The request to permit the women to travel for the purpose of praying at al-Aqsa Mosque dated May 21, 2012 (Hebrew)
