Turkey celebrates Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr

Millions across Turkey on Thursday performed special prayers on the first day of the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr amid protective measures due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The prayers were performed in accordance with social distancing and hygiene rules.

People went to the mosques within walking distance of their homes to perform the Eid prayer.

While disinfectants were placed at entrances, visitors wore masks and brought their own prayer mats.

The Eid sermon touched upon Israel's attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque and Palestinians, as well as warned the congregation to comply with COVID-19 measures and avoid visiting relatives during the holiday.
