In a rare step Israel said on October 2, 2014 it would let 500 Palestinians living in Gaza pray at a Jerusalem holy site during the Eid al-Adha feast over the weekend, and allow Palestinians from the West Bank to enter Israel more freely for the holiday.

The IDF said that from Oct. 5 through 7 the days of the Muslim feast, 500 Palestinians from Gaza aged 60 and over would be permitted to pray at the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, and 500 could visit close relatives in the West Bank.
