The order comes from concerns of further firing from Gaza after two Grad rockets landed in Beersheba earlier this week, causing building damage, with five people treated for shock.
The IDF also instructed residents of towns surround Gaza to be alert over the weekend.
Soldiers responded to the Grad attacks late Wednesday night with a series of attacks throughout the Gaza strip on Thursday.
Palestinian news reports said one person was killed and three wounded in
an IAF attack in Rafah. The IDF said the targets were linked to Hamas
and had been involved in terrorist activity.
Commenting on the attack in Beersheba, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu
said Thursday, "I do not recommend that anyone test Israel's
determination. We will not tolerate anyone bombing us."
