IDF Home Front Command extends emergency rules through Saturday

The IDF Home Front Command extends its emergency restrictions for areas under threat of Gaza rockets until Saturday evening.

The decision has been made following a situational assessment after the fighting has shown no sign of abating.

The restrictions limit outdoor gatherings to 10 people and indoor gatherings to 100 people in areas of southern and central Israel targeted repeatedly over the coming days, including the Tel Aviv metropolitan area.

They also forbid educational activities and say workplaces can only operate in places where a bomb shelter can be reached in time.
