Readiness upped over attack fears ahead of ceasefire

Security forces have drastically ramped up preparedness as reports come in of a possible ceasefire in the next few hours, Channel 2 reports.

Officials fear terrorists will use the last hours before the ceasefire goes into effect to launch large volleys of rockets at Israel, or they may try to infiltrate into southern communities to carry out attacks.

The hours before ceasefires have, in the past, seen an uptick in hostilities, as combatants try to get in their last licks before laying down their arms.

According to Channel 2, a 72-hour ceasefire brokered in Egypt will be announced in the coming hours and go into effect Tuesday morning.
