Comments: Since May 10 2021 at 18:00, hundreds (approx. 2000) of rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israeli villages and cities surrounding and up to 170km from the border including Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Beer-Sheba. This is the largest and most significant attack on the Israeli population for years. In addition to the Rocket attacks, in many cities all over Isreal, civil unrest has broken out and violent demonstrations are taking place, during which dozens were injured (few of them suffer serious injuries), and severe damage is caused to houses, synagogues, stores, and cars. For the first time in the history of Israel, a state of emergency and a night curfew were declared in the city of Lod and the public at risk was evacuated from their houses during one of the nights. 10 Israelis were killed and hundreds are injured. MDA treated 653 and transported most of them to hospitals. In the center and south of Israel, school activities are canceled, and public gatherings in open places are not allowed. The affected population in the villages and cities in the range of the rockets are required to remain in the vicinity of 15-90 seconds from the shelters, depending on their distance from the border. Within several kilometers from the Gaza strip border, the movement in roads and train tracks is restricted.
