Home Front Command Lets Gaza Envelope Schools Reopen

The Home Front Command has issued a statement allowing schools and preschools located between seven and 40 kilometers from the country’s border with Gaza to reopen on Wednesday, provided they have suitable shelters for the children on site.

Children living within the Gaza Envelope had not been able to attend educational institutions in the region, out of fear of persistent rocket attacks.
