"Go to work," was the message OC Home Front Command Maj.-Gen. Gershon Yitzhak passed on to residents of the North Saturday night as more than 150 Katyusha rockets struck northern Israel over the weekend. "People can and should go to work [on Sunday]," Yitzhak said, adding that as long as their workplace was indoors and had a security room to enter during rocket attacks, there was no reason northern residents could not try and carry on with their normal routine. "The terror groups aim their attacks at what they see to be our weak point - the home front," Yitzhak said. "They make no distinction between men, women, race or religion." The IDF's instructions were as follows:

  • Residents of confrontation-line communities should remain in bomb shelters or security rooms.
  • People living north of Acre and Amiad, including in Karmiel, Tiberias, Haifa and nearby suburbs, should remain indoors, in security rooms or internal rooms away from external walls and windows.
  • Residents of Nazareth, Upper Nazareth, Migdal Ha'emek and Kiryat Tivon should stay indoors and avoid large gatherings in open areas.
  • People in other parts of the country, including Tel Aviv and the Dan region, should "raise their level of alert," and if they hear an explosion, immediately enter secure rooms.
