The broadcasting networks have set aside radio frequencies intended to warn residents of possible rocket attacks overnight.

The "silent frequencies" will only broadcast sirens as a means to indicate to residents that they best find a bombproof shelter nearby.

The frequencies are as follows: in Ashdod and Ashkelon, 101.5 FM; in Lehavim, Meitar, and the Arava region, 95.8 FM; in Beersheba and the metropolitan area, 97 FM; in Rishon Letzion and its immediate surroundings, 91 FM; and in the center of the country, 100 FM.

The silent frequencies will be in operation until 6 a.m. local time Tuesday.
