The IDF Home Front Command on Sunday night lifted restrictions on public gatherings that were imposed in response to a significant drone and missile attack by Iran which occurred overnight on Motzoei Shabbos.

This decision was made several hours after the IDF had extended guidelines that limited educational activities nationwide and restricted gatherings exceeding 1,000 individuals.

Although these restrictions have been eased, stricter measures remain in place in certain high-risk areas, particularly near the Gaza and Lebanon borders.

The initial restrictions had affected approximately 2.5 million children in Israel, prohibiting educational activities on Sunday in anticipation of the extensive Iranian missile and drone assault, during which over 300 projectiles were fired at Israel.

Among the casualties, a seven-year-old Bedouin girl critically injured in the attacks underwent surgery on Sunday for a severe head injury and remains in critical condition.

Following a strategic evaluation with senior security officials on Sunday morning, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant cautioned the public to stay alert as the situation continues to develop.
