Lapid promises Gaza-area local leaders roads won’t stay closed much longer

Prime Minister Yair Lapid speaks with local and regional council chiefs representing Gantz-area localities that have been under a de facto lockdown for three days amid road closures due to threats of a Palestinian Islamic Jihad attack.

Lapid updated the local leaders by phone on recent security developments and said he fully understands the harm to daily lives in the communities, according to a statement from his office.

He notes that he won’t allow the current situation to continue for much longer, adding that he will hold more security assessments today and will take action against any organization that threatens Israeli citizens.

The phone call is attended by Lapid’s chief of staff and military secretary, alongside the mayor of Sderot and the heads of the Eshkol, Hof Ashkelon, Sdot Negev and Shaar Hanegev regional councils.
