Home Front Command drill simulating multiple-front conflict set to begin on Sunday

A nationwide Home Front Command drill simulating conflict on multiple fronts will begin on Sunday, lasting through the week.

On Tuesday, air raid sirens will go off across the country at 11:05 a.m. to test school responses to heavy rocket attack, and again at 7:05 p.m. to prompt civilians to seek cover in preselected safe areas.

The exercise is not based on any concrete military assessment of a future conflict but is instead aimed at preparing both the civilian sector and offensive military sites for the scenario of unprecedented projectile attacks on Israel.
