As the security cabinet announced that the IDF will remove the security restrictions on Thursdays, Gaza border communities are preparing to return to "routine."
"Back to routine - a routine of incendiary balloons and explosions," MK Haim Yellin (Yesh Atid), former head of the Eshkol Regional Council said in response to the security cabinet's decision. "A routine of war next to the (Southern) border, a routine that the Gaza Strip is not part of the state of Israel. The Gaza Strip is the playground of Hamas and the Cabinet."
Gadi Yarkoni, the current head of the Eshkol Regional Council responded with less dismay towards the decision on Army Radio,  "A military operation is definitely the last resort," he said.
