As of midnight, the searches are continuing, though residents not in the Tel Zion area have been allowed in to the town, which is still under lockdown.

The town’s air raid siren is sounding every 10 minutes as part of the warning to the residents to stay indoors.

After the terror attack in Efrat last week, the IDF will continue to maintain a presence and search the town throughout the night.

The town was removed from lockdown at around 2:30 AM.
