The groups were heavily guarded by private units of the Israeli police throughout their provocative tour.
Security sources said that the Israeli intelligence have been going on regular trips in Al-Aqsa mosque facilities and yards, to obtain complete knowledge of the activities of the Aqsa guardians (Murabiteen) and worshipers.
To their part, the worshipers have protested the raid act with shouting slogans against the regular stormings into the third holiest place in the religion of Islam.
These religious violations have been going on almost daily by extremist groups, which are protected and rewarded by Israeli politicians and leaders. The raids often contain verbal, or non-verbal clashes with Palestinian worshipers and shouting slogans.
Israeli police forces prevent Muslims from entering the mosque for prayers, and often detain their ID cards after setting iron checkpoints around the mosque to ease the settlers entrance to the mosque.
