A number of Israelis have received text messages warning them not to attend the annual Jerusalem Day Flag Dance and spreading false reports of explosives spread among the crowd in front of Jerusalem's Great Synagogue.
The sender of the text messages claimed to be the "Police Spokesperson." In response, the police stated that the messages are fake and "lack any grip on reality and are of no importance at all."
The messages read: "Warning to participants in the Flag March, the security personnel found suspicious objects scattered along Hatsanhanim street."
Another message reads: "There is a suspicious figure carrying a bag who managed to blend in among the participants in the march, whoever notices her must notify the security forces. Please be careful."
