Tension is running high in the holy Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem after Jewish settlers stormed and roamed the plazas of the holy site at the early morning hours on Monday.
The Aqsa guards said that Israeli occupation police escorted the groups of settlers who were roaming the mosque in provocative tours.
They said that the policemen were barricading the settlers in face of the angry Muslim worshipers, who were preparing to confront the settlers.
Israeli policemen and special forces broke into the holy site on Sunday night and forced out worshipers for the third straight night.
