Facebook-organized demonstrators are promising unrest on the 44th anniversary of the 1967 Mideast war this weekend.
The official says the army is planning to send large numbers of troops equipped with riot-control means, like water cannons and rubber bullets, in order to avoid a repeat of deadly unrest earlier this month.
Fourteen people were killed in protests along the Lebanese and Syrian borders on May 15.
The unrest marked the Palestinian day of mourning on the anniversary of Israel's founding.
