Security forces were preparing for a "Day of Rage" planned by settlers to take place throughout the country on Thursday.

The protests were expected as a response to the demolition of several illegally constructed buildings in the West Bank outpost of Gilad Farm on Monday.

Early Thursday morning, burning tires were placed at the entrance to Jerusalem, blocking traffic. Police moved the impromptu roadblocks to the side of the road and traffic slowly began moving.
