Israeli Army on High Alert as Palestinians Mark War Anniversary

Antenna Audio, Inc./Getty Images(JERUSALEM) -- Israel's army is on high alert Tuesday as Palestinians mark another event from the 1967 Mideast War.

So far, its been a day without protests and violence, but given Sunday's deadly clashes along the northern border, Israel is taking extra precautions.

The Israeli army has increased its presence in the West Bank and along the northern border with Syria and Lebanon, bracing for the possibility of more demonstrations.  The precautions come on the anniversary of what Palestinians call Al-Quds day.  The day marks when Israel captured East Jerusalem during the 1967 Mideast War.

Alarm bells have been raised mostly from calls by online social media groups, like the Facebook group "Countdown to the Third Palestinian Intifada," which is urging followers to march to Jerusalem's Al-Aksa mosque.
