The Israel Police will deploy increased forces in anticipation of possible disturbances after Friday prayers at the Temple Mount and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's address to the UN General Assembly in New York.

The special deployment will focus on Jerusalem and other areas of expected tension along the Green Line, at crossings and in mixed population cities,  the Israel Police spokesman's office said Thursday.

The alert was expected to remain in place until Saturday morning.
