Palestinian authorities have reopened mosques in the Gaza Strip weeks after they were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This was disclosed by the Ministry of Waqf and Religious Affairs on Sunday October 18, 2020, in a statement.
The ministry however, decided to keep mosques closed in areas categorized as red zones, where high numbers of virus infections were recorded.
The statement also reveals that the mosques were disinfected before the reopening.
“All preventive measures, including wearing masks, will be observed by worshippers while performing prayers at mosques,” it adds.
