There was severe traffic congestion in central Israel on Thursday afternoon due to police roadblocks set up in a security operation. The main traffic jams were on Route 40, between Ramat Hakovesh and central Ra'anana, between Petah Tikva and the Ginaton region, and between Palmahim and Ramle. Security forces were asking drivers to slow down for spot checks at the roadblocks. Police have yet to announce the nature of the operation.
