OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Tal Russo ordered Monday the reopening of Route 12 between Mitzpe Ramon and Eilat. The road will be open to traffic between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The IDF closed the road in recent weeks following warnings of a terror attack.

The IDF said that it decided to reopen the road because the threat has passed.
