The Israel Defence Forces will lift restrictions on several areas along the border with the Gaza Strip, including the site of the Supernova music festival near Kibbutz Re’im, where Hamas terrorists massacred over 360 people on Oct. 7.

The decision was made following a security assessment and approved by the head of the Israel Defense Forces’ Southern Command.

The areas of the Re’im forest where the rave took place, in addition to agricultural areas in Kibbutz Yad Mordechai and Kibbutz Mefalsim, will no longer be closed military zones.

Hamas slaughtered 364 people—nearly a third of the 1,200 people killed during the massacre—at the outdoor event, which was attended by 3,500 people. Many more were wounded, and at least 40 were taken back to Gaza as hostages. There were widespread reports of rape and sexual abuse.
