The Israeli Army heightened its security measures Friday ahead of a major protests on “Jerusalem Day” expected after Friday prayers in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The Israeli Radio said the IDF are on high alert as they are expecting confrontations on Gaza border with Israel.

At least 115 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli army fire on daily protests sparked since March, 30.

Friday’s protest which coincide with “Jerusalem Day” has additional meaning this year with the United States recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Last night the Israeli army dropped leaflets warning Gaza residents to stay away from its border with Israel during the protest.

The leaflets carried a warning saying any confrontations near the border will bring with it “serious harm.”
