OC Southern command Maj.-Gen. Sami Turgeman warned Hamas would be making a serious mistake if it violated the truce, on Tuesday.

Speaking near the Gaza border, he said residents of the area could return to their homes, adding the army has created an improved security environment.

"We are deployed in force around the Strip and around southern communities in order to continue to secure residents," Turgeman said.
