Home Front Defense Minister Matan Vilna’i ordered Sunday morning that the Emergency Management Center be opened at the Defense Ministry headquarters in Tel Aviv in order to provide support for local authorities in the South.

The move comes after over 80 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel over the weekend and after a terror attack on Thursday that left eight people dead.
