IDF to Public: Steer Clear of Gaza Region For Shavuot
The IDF issued a public advisory not to make trips to areas near the Israel-Gaza border over the Shavuot festival, which begins Tuesday night.
The Home Front Command expects rockets to intensify over the holiday, speculating that cities as far away as Ashkelon and Be’er Sheva may be struck as well.
It is unclear whether the advisory is directed toward the thousands who live in those areas as well.
