Home Front Defense Minister Avi Dichter said Friday that Israel "expects a continuation of the firing of hundreds of rockets in the coming days."
Speaking at a special press briefing in Sderot, Dichter implored Israeli citizens to follow safety instructions in the face of rocket attacks from Gaza.
"All that is needed is to do the most simple, life-saving thing and to go to the most sheltered place, whether its a shelter, fortified room, back room or just laying on the floor - the state invested millions in order to be able to give specific warnings, unlike in other wars, and the citizens must follow instructions," he stated.
