The Israel Police was on high alert throughout the country Friday morning ahead of the Passover holiday. Large police forces, border police forces and volunteers were set to patrol crowded areas with the aid of helicopters.

A large police force also arrived in Eilat on Thursday for reinforcement, following the Grad rocket that was fired into the city late Wednesday night.
