The Home Front Command released updated safety instructions on Saturday evening, in which it cancelled safety instructions for areas within proximity to the Gaza Strip and placed all of Israel under routine status.

Last week, the Home Front Command told local authorities within 80 kilometers of Gaza to keep public bomb shelters open days after a truce went into effect between Israel and Hamas.
