The IDF has closed the main entrance to the Nevatim Air Force at night and instructed IAF soldiers not to use the section of Route 31 leading to the Negev base during those hours for fear of attacks by local Beduin, Channel 1 reported on Tuesday. It comes after a series of incidents in which the vehicles of soldiers traveling from the country's largest militray base were pelted with rocks and other objects, including fridges.
