The Knesset took part in the "Turning Point 5" civil defense exercise on Wednesday, stopping a plenum discussion for ten minutes and evacuating to the building's bomb shelter.

Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin said of the parliamentarians that "We see special importance that the Knesset take part in this exercise, not just as citizens of the state but rather because we are threatened and a target of attack."
