Security forces on high alert as Jewish Israelis mark Yom Kippur

Security forces were on high alert Tuesday as Jews across the country were set to observe Yom Kippur, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar.

The Jewish Day of Atonement comes amid increased tensions in Jerusalem, which has recently seen rioting at the Temple Mount and an increase in Molotov cocktail and stone-throwing attacks.

There were also two attempted separate terror attacks in Hebron on Monday night and Tuesday morning ahead of Yom Kippur.
