Home Front Command instructed the Negev city of Be’er Sheva to cancel the Smilansky Festival scheduled for Wednesday night, and a festival that was scheduled for Friday in the Old City section of the city.
In addition, the population continues to be restricted to a maximum of 300 people at gatherings; summer camps, special education classes and kindergartens and day care programs are all closed for the rest of the week.
Be’er Sheva has been repeatedly targeted in missile fire by Hamas terrorists in Gaza due to its strategic position and a number of important sites within the city.
