Police say five Jerusalem men have been arrested over alleged Islamic State ties.

The suspects, all in their 30s, were detained over the weekend, police say.

Their remand has been extended until tomorrow.

The arrests come as Israeli authorities have attempted to clamp down on those affiliated with the jihadist group, following a series of attacks committed in their name.
