The instructions issued on Tuesday indicate that the military expects heavy rocket fire out of Gaza to continue for some time.

People were told to stay indoors until Wednesday in the announcement.

The military’s Home Front Command also canceled school and university studies and “non-essential” jobs throughout southern Israel. It limited public gatherings to no more than 100 people in closed spaces.

It canceled classes and limited public gatherings to 300 people in the Tel Aviv area, which is farther from the Gaza border. It said non-essential work could continue but only if near a bomb shelter.

Gaza militants have fired dozens of rockets into Israel following the death of an Islamic Jihad leader in an Israeli airstrike.
