The Israel Defense Forces has extended restrictions on movement and gathering for residents living up to 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the Gaza Strip to Monday at 6 p.m.
The IDF says the extension of the restrictions comes following an assessment held by military officials, following renewed rocket fire from Gaza at Israel. The rules were supposed to end at 8 p.m. today.
The Home Front Command rules mandate school closures, work closures — unless employees have a bomb-safe room they can reach in time — and limit outdoor gatherings to no more than 10 people. Indoor gatherings are restricted to 100 people.
Additionally, special education schools are permitted to operate, provided there is a bomb-safe room that school kids and teachers can reach in time.
