Event

Rocket sirens are blaring in Israeli areas around the Gaza Strip, including in the Eshkol regional council, as of the night (local time) of Sunday, November 11. The flare-up reportedly comes after Israel Defense Forces (IDF) killed a Hamas military commander in a special operation in the Gaza Strip. As of 23:20, it was unclear if Palestinian rockets had fallen in Israel and if there were any resultant casualties; at least two missiles had been intercepted by the Iron Dome as of 23:27. Israeli schools near the Gaza Strip have canceled classes on Monday, November 12, due to the cross-border rocket fire; individuals are only permitted to go to work on Monday if they have access to a bomb shelter. Additional Palestinian rocket attacks are possible on Israeli settlements near the Gaza Strip over the coming hours.

Context

In general, rocket fire and strikes between Israel and the Gaza Strip have intensified since early December 2017. Hundreds of rockets and mortars have been fired from the Gaza Strip, often followed by retaliatory Israeli airstrikes.

Advice

Individuals present in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation and seek immediate shelter in the event of a rocket attack. Due to the underlying terrorist threat, travelers in Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip are advised to report any suspicious objects or behavior to the authorities. Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas near the Israeli-Lebanese, Israeli-Syrian, and Israeli-Egyptian borders.
