The military’s Home Front Command orders residents of 28 towns in northern Israel, close to the Lebanon border, to remain in the shelters until further notice out of fear of rocket attacks as the border with Lebanon heats up.

The call covers the northern towns of Metula, Rosh Hanikra, Manara, Shlomi, Misgav Am and Dafna, among others.

It earlier ordered residents of the towns Arab al-Aramshe, Adamit, Hanita and Eilon to take cover.

The order comes as the IDF carries out strikes in Lebanon following an armed infiltration on the border.
