Police are on high alert in the Golan Heights and Jerusalem on Monday following a day of disturbances in the Syrian border area and Kalandiya, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told The Jerusalem Post.

Ongoing assessments are underway to gauge the security situation in those areas ahead of Shavuot, Rosenfeld said, but he denied an Israel Radio report claiming that police were contemplating a closure of the Majdal Shams area.

"No one is thinking about closing off the Golan. If for any reason there is a security development, it will be necessary to take steps like setting up road blocks and coordinating responses," Rosenfeld said.

"We are maintaining a beefed up presence in the North and Jerusalem," he added.
