Terror Alert Tying up Traffic at Eastern J'm Entrances

Traffic in both directions was tied up at the Hizme crossing, outside the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze'ev, Sunday evening, as security services increased their inspections of cars entering and leaving Jerusalem, in light of a warning about an imminent terror attack. Congestion was also reported near Ma'aleh Adumim, east of the capital.

Roadblocks and an increased police presence were reported elsewhere in the city as authorities looked for suspicious people.
