Home Front Command Has Updated Its Guidelines


The Home Front Command updated its guidelines due to day's (Wednesday) escalation of rocket fire from Gaza into Israel, and are as follows:

Gatherings of more than 300 persons within a 7 kilometer range of the Gaza border are forbidden, be they in open or closed venues. Summer recreational activities, summer camps and kindergartens will only be open in protected, reinforced locations that can be reached within the prescribed time. No restrictions have been set for places of employment or stores.

In locations within a range of 40-80 kilometers of the border, gatherings of 1,000 people or more are not to take place in open areas.

No other events have had restrictions placed upon them.
