The Israel Defense Forces has lifted restrictions imposed on communities close to the border with the Gaza Strip amid rocket fire.

Shortly before the rocket barrage, the IDF instructed residents to remain near bomb shelters.

Residents now no longer need to remain close to bomb shelters, the IDF’s Home Front Command says, though the situation could change.

“Upon receiving an alert, enter a protected space and stay there for 10 minutes,” the IDF adds in a message to residents.

The IDF says there are currently no special instructions for residents.
