Traffic will be forbidden starting Thursday morning in and around Jerusalem's Old City ahead of an anticipated mass gathering at the Kotel for Birkat Kohanim, police said on Wednesday night.

Birkat Kohanim, or 'Priestly Blessing,' takes place annually every Pessah and is generally attended by thousands of Jewish worshippers.

Those wishing to attend the ceremony or enter the Old City will be permitted to park their vehicles at various nearby parking lots, among them Ammunition Hill.
