“After a ceasefire was implemented overnight, directives issued by the Home Front Command in recent weeks, including requiring residents of Gaza border communities to remain near shelters, were mostly lifted on Friday morning,” the message says.
Meanwhile, the schools in the center and on the south of Israel remain closed. The Israeli Defense Forces ask people to remain on alert.
The ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in Gaza appeared to be holding as of early Friday morning after the two sides fought for 11 days. The ceasefire began at 2:00 a.m. local time on Friday.
As it was reported earlier, on late May 11, a huge missile attack occurred in Tel Aviv and its vicinities. Hamas movement claimed the responsibility, stating that 130 missiles were fired in the direction of the Israeli capital city.
Earlier, Israel Defense Forces reported about 2,900 missiles launched by Hamas at the Israeli territory.
The new escalation stage is observed between Israeli and Palestine caused by clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police at Temple Mount in Jerusalem and consideration of the removal of Palestinians from Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Jerusalem by the Supreme Court of Israel. As a result, the Supreme Court of Israel made a decision to postpone the consideration of the case.
