Breaking: Possible Security Incident in Ashkelon Coast Area


A large deployment of IDF and security forces has descended upon the Kibbutz Zikim area in the Ashkelon area, according to multiple reports, due to concerns over a possible security incident there.

Residents in communities throughout the Hof Ashkelon region have been warned to stay in their homes as authorities determine the threat level; Kibbutz Zikim is only about a kilometer and a half from the Gaza border.
