Three people have been arrested after an incident at Sydney’s Jewish Museum.

Officers were called to Darlinghurst Road in Darlinghurst shortly before midday on Friday where they arrested three men.

NCA NewsWire understands that the men were allegedly performing Nazi salutes outside the building.

NSW Police have not yet revealed the details about the incident but police cars have lined the streets outside the museum.

“While there is no ongoing risk to the public Darlinghurst Road remains closed the public to ongoing inquiries,” a NSW Police spokesperson said.

It’s understood there were no threats of violence involved in the incident.

Tensions in Sydney are high after an escalation of violence between Israel and Palestine on Saturday, when militant group Hamas fired more than 3500 rockets in a surprise attack.

More than 1000 Israeli civilians were killed at a music festival while armed militants also stormed Jewish communities, killing and capturing hostages.

Israel has responded with force in the escalating conflict with Hamas, firing thousands of rockets into Gaza in a “complete siege” of the region, flattening dozens of buildings.

As the conflict continues, NSW Police say they are committed to keeping the community safe.

“NSW Police are working strongly with all communities to keep them safe and Eastern Suburbs police area command particularly are working with our partners in government, as well as our local community leaders, schools, and synagogues to keep everyone safe,” Detective Superintendent Jodie Radmore said on Thursday.

“We have enough resources to protect them.”

Organisers of a pro-Palestine rally in Sydney’s CBD this Sunday have vowed to continue on despite being denied a permit by police.

There was widespread condemnation of a similar rally held on Monday night where some protesters were heard chanting anti-Semitic slogans in front of the Opera House.

The scenes were described as “abhorrent” by NSW Premier Chris Minns.

“To have some people celebrate atrocious indiscriminate killing and kidnapping in Israel is appalling,” he said.

“This is the opposite of the dynamic multicultural community we want in NSW and Australia.”

The group behind the protest has condemned the actions of a “tiny fringe” of 20 “vile anti-Semitic attendees” who were not connected to the rally.

“From our observations this occurred for less than one minute and was not an ongoing chant. They were quickly condemned for their chants and asked to leave,” Palestine Action Group Sydney wrote on social media.

“Longstanding Palestinian organisers and activists, Palestinian, Arab and Muslim elders attending the protest were disgusted and deplored by the action.”

“This is not what our movement stands for.”

A man was arrested on Thursday and banned from entering a number of Sydney’s eastern suburbs after an incident where he allegedly threatened to kill four teenagers.

It has been alleged that Abdullah Al-Taay verbally threatened four teenagers on Bellevue Rd in Bellevue Hill at 6.30pm on Monday after they had tried to display an Israeli flag on their car.

“I swear if I f***ing see youse with that flag I’ll f***ing kill youse all,” he allegedly says in a video of the incident.

He has been charged with four counts of stalk/intimidate intending to cause fear or physical harm.

More to come.
