Palestinian student: Israeli restrictions are 'very oppressive'

A Palestinian student has criticised the restrictions Israel has placed on Palestinians, saying they are "very oppressive".

Majd Awad said that "people are feeling so angry".

Israeli authorities have been preventing men under the age of 40 from entering the al-Aqsa mosque, which Mr Awad said is "not just a religious symbol" but also a political one and a point of Palestinian identity.
