There is a suspected terrorist infiltration into the southern city of Sderot, the municipality says.

“Due to the fear of terrorists infiltrating Sderot, [residents] should continue to lock themselves in their homes and stay near protected spaces, and not go out for any purpose. Please lock doors and windows and continue to obey instructions,” Sderot says in a statement to residents.

Live television footage shows Israeli forces standing guard, awaiting possible Hamas terrorists.

Earlier, the Israel Defense Forces ordered residents of Sderot and the nearby Kibbutz Mefalsim to remain in their homes until further notice.
