Israeli security forces are girding for possible violence in the coming days as Palestinian Land Day is commemorated tomorrow, and Ramadan begins at the end of the week.

Police have bolstered forces in areas where there is a threat of violence, following a deadly terrorist attack committed by two Israeli Arab gunmen affiliated with Islamic State in Hadera on Sunday.

The Israel Defense Forces has also bolstered troops in the West Bank.

Meanwhile, a wave of arrests against those with Islamic State ties is expected to continue after 12 were detained overnight.

At the same time, Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Public Security Minister Omer Barlev met with Jordan’s King Abdullah II to discuss ways to lower tensions with the Palestinians during the holy Muslim month, seen as a time of greater possibility for violence.
