Following an assessment of the situation that was held today in the security establishment, and following the removal of the threat against the State of Israel, it was decided to lower the level of preparedness. This includes the release of all reserve soldiers and the lowering of preparedness in the Air Force, Military Intelligence and Homefront Command.

Against this background, the Homefront Command issued instructions regarding canceling the need to carry protective kits and dismantling the sealed rooms.

Detailed instructions about packing the protective kit and how to dismantle the sealed room and recycle plastic will be distributed separately.

The IDF will continue with its preparedness and alertness and all that is required according to situation assessments, including in the area of active defense. The IDF wishes every Israeli a happy Passover.
