Some of the bus lines in Ashkelon and the Gaza border area will be modified, and others were canceled.

In the Eshkol Regional Council, lines 36 and 379 will not operate; line 35 from Be'er Sheva will operate as usual. Bus lines 19, 20, 26, 27, and 29 in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council will not operate on Tuesday, and changes will be made to lines 361, 363, 364, 391, 464, 465, 490, 492, and 498, which travel via the Givati Junction.
