24-Oct-11: There's a heightened terror alert in effect in Jerusalem right now

Having just returned home from the center of Jerusalem, we're not so surprised to read that the authorities "have raised the city's alert level on Monday due to a terror warning. Helicopters have been dispatched and police are patrolling the area."

It's been a while since we saw such a noticeable presence of Yasam Rapid Response Motorcycle Unit anti-terrorism cops mounted two-to-a-bike riding through the central city's streets and lanes. Let's pray it's a false alarm.

UPDATE 17:45 Ynet says "The Jerusalem Police on Monday ended the heightened security alert called in the capital after several tense hours."
