The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced Sunday it had arrested four high-level operatives from an outlawed group backed by the Islamic Movement in Israel.

The four were accused of operating and recruiting for the "Mourabitoun" movement, an organization that harasses Jewish and Christian tourists at the Temple Mount.

Israeli government outlawed the Mourabitoun in November 2015.

"The violent activities of the 'Mourabitoun' (male) and 'Mourabitat' (female) on the Temple Mount endangers the security of tourists visiting the site and causes an escalation of tensions and disturbances of order, causing harm to Israel's sovereignty at the complex," said the Shin Bet.
