The south of Israel has seen a serious escalation in violence in the past three days, beginning when terrorists staged a three-stage attack just north of Eilat on Thursday afternoon.

Since then, at least a hundred rockets have rained down on the South from Gaza, the IDF has attacked terror targets in the Strip, and victims have been buried.

The Iron Dome rocket defense system also successfully intercepted three rockets fired from Gaza in the direction of Ashkelon.

Police have instructed residents of the South to remain in safe zones and to remain tuned in to instructions from the IDF Home Front Command.
