Residents of Gaza border communities told to lock themselves in their homes

Judah Ari Gross is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Residents of a number of communities adjacent to the Gaza Strip have been instructed to immediately lock themselves inside their homes due to an “irregular security incident,” local officials say.

Residents are additionally told to enter the secure areas of their homes.

It appears that security services fear terrorists may have infiltrated into Israeli territory from Gaza.

A similar incident occurred on Monday evening, but was later found to be a false alarm.
