War in the South. Today is the ninth day. After a quiet night, terrorists fired a barrage of rockets towards Tel Aviv.

Following the rocket fire, residents of the following cities were required to enter protected areas: Tel Aviv, Herzliya, Ramat Hasharon, Cinema City Glilot, and the Pi Glilot Complex.

Magen David Adom (MDA) provided an update: "Following the recent sirens in the central area of the country, at this stage, no reports of casualties or falls have been received."

Suspicion of terrorists in Ofakim

Simultaneously with the rocket fire, there is concern about the infiltration of terrorists in Ofakim. Due to the presence of a suspicious individual in the city, residents of the city are required to enter protected areas and take shelter.

In recent days, terrorists who remained in Israeli territory have occasionally emerged in several locations. They are eliminated by soldiers deployed in the Gaza border region. Ofakim is situated about twenty kilometers from the Gaza Strip, and it is the farthest point where terrorists have been found after they seized the territory last Monday.

After about half an hour, it was revealed that the alert was triggered due to the discovery of a cellular phone belonging to a terrorist from Gaza. Following an examination, it appears that the phone fell from the terrorist from the terrorist attack on Saturday. Normalcy was declared, and residents were allowed to leave the protected areas.
