The Israel Defense Forces instruct residents of towns near the border with the Gaza Strip to remain close to bomb shelters until further notice, as the military anticipates intensifying rocket attacks.

Military spokesman Daniel Hagari tells reporters that the IDF will conduct a new assessment at 8 a.m. and decide whether or not the order will remain in place.
