The IDF raised its level of alert expecting a tense weekend south of the country near the Gaza Strip border, Ynet reported on Thursday night.

The IDF cited concerns factions in the Gaza Strip like Islamic Jihad might try to exploit the tense situation in Israel, as it heads to elections, and fire rockets into the South of the country. The extra measures and alert level are expected to be maintained until elections is over.
