Residents of towns in the Hevel Shalom area, near the tri-border with Gaza and Egypt, are briefly ordered to remain in shelters amid a suspected drone infiltration from the Strip, local authorities say.

An all-clear is given after around 10 minutes.

The vast majority of residents living in communities close to the border with the Gaza Strip have already evacuated amid the fighting.
