Thousands of Palestinian Muslims are expected to visit the Al-Aksa mosque in Jerusalem on Sunday to commemorate Laylat al-Qadr, Palestinian news agency Ma'an quoted a local group as saying.

According to the report, The Al-Aqsa Foundation for Waqf and Heritage will distribute 25,000 meals inside the compound for the Iftar and Suhoor meals.

Laylat Al Qadr, which falls this year on August 4, is the anniversary of the revelation of part of the Koran. Laylat Al Qadr, which loosely translates as "Night of Power," is considered the holiest night of Ramadan.
