On the morning of March 31, the Israel Defense Forces announced that following an assessment, several sites in the Gaza border will no longer be classified as part of the closed military zone.

Parts of the Re'im forest and a number of agricultural areas in Kibbutz Yad Mordechai and Kibbutz Mefalsim will not have restrictions.

The Re'im forest was the site of the Nova rave on October 7, where over 360 people were killed by terrorists. Now, citizens can freely visit the memorial created in this area.

In recent days, there have been no reports of Israeli territory being shelled from the Gaza Strip. However, the border areas should be visited with caution.
