RAMALLAH, West Bank — Israel canceled permission for hundreds of residents of Gaza to enter Jerusalem to pray during Ramadan in Al Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest site, after rocket fire from the coastal enclave, officials said on Wednesday.

The Israeli military agency that handles Palestinian civilian affairs, known as Cogat, said on Twitter that it had made the decision after rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza on Tuesday night, in violation of a truce that was put in place after the war last summer between Hamas and Israel.

The cancellation affected 500 Palestinians who were planning to worship in Al Aqsa Mosque on Thursday and Friday, an Israeli official said. She spoke on the condition of anonymity, citing the agency’s guidelines.
