A large-scale Border Police exercise simulating security scenarios commenced on Tuesday afternoon in the Rehovot and Yavne area.

As part of the exercise, sections of  Routes 41, 42, 40 and 431 were sealed in the Rehovot and Yavne areas.

The exercise will continue throughout the week, and members of the public have been advised to expect further road closes, and heavy traffic of security vehicles.

Members of the public who find themselves near the exercise should also expect to hear sounds of gunfire and explosions as part of the drill.

The exercise, dubbed "replay," will involve firefighters, paramedics, and other Israel Police units in addition to the Border Police, and will play out across a number of areas around the country.
