Israelis who live some 40 kilometers or more from Gaza, including residents of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, are advised by Homefront Command to go on with their daily lives this Saturday, but to make sure they have a safe space set up and accessible in case of any further attacks.

Israelis with no public shelter near them are advised to enter the innermost room in their home upon hearing sirens — the room with the fewest windows and exterior walls.

People living above the second floor of a building are advised to move down to the second-floor stairwell, which is the most protected part of any building, according to officials.

After the sirens abate, residents are advised to stay in their safe spaces for 10 minutes.
