Head of Eshkol Regional Council tells residents to stay away

Haim Jelin, head of the Eshkol Regional Council, instructs residents not to return until it is clear that the ceasefire is for real, Israel Radion reports.

Jelin tells Channel 10 that if the rocket fire continues, he will ask government ministers to come to the region with their families, and decide on their next steps in rocket range. “It’s easy to make decisions from the bunkers, as Hamas does.”
