Police, paramedics and security personnel in Jerusalem are on high alert following a concrete warning of a planned terrorist attack.

Forces have been stationed at major junctions throughout the capital, and there are more police officers than usual stationed across the city.

In addition, checkpoints have been set up at entrances to the city and at major junctions. The checkpoints have led to heavy traffic jams in the area.

Jerusalem has gone on high alert on several occasions over the past year due to warnings of terrorist attacks. Thankfully, soldiers and security personnel have managed to nab terrorists before they carried out their plans.
