French police on Friday asked local Jewish leaders to conclude Saturday morning prayers earlier than usual due to a mass protest against Israel scheduled to take place in Paris that same day.

Protest marches will also be held throughout the French capital, even in the city's Jewish neighborhoods.

Fearing clashes between protesters and Jewish worshipers leaving the synagogue after the prayers, police asked the Jewish leaders to tell their congregants to return to their homes after praying and avoid the streets until the demonstrations end.
