The military announces that as of noon, all security measures the Home Front Command put in place across the south and center of the country have been lifted after the ceasefire last night to end the fighting in Gaza with Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

A statement from the Israel Defense Forces says the move follows a situational assessment it held.

The restrictions were largely related to gatherings. In towns closer to the border, residents were asked to remain close to bomb shelters.
