We have not received any reports of recent incidences of rocket attacks on Israel and we believe that the present level of threat of such attacks is low to moderate. We are aware of recent false alarms of rocket fire into Israel. We amended our travel advice for Israel on 2 September, to remove advice against all travel to areas of Israel within a 40km range of the Israeli border with Gaza.
