Israel tested sirens warning of incoming projectiles on Tuesday morning in northern Israel's Upper Galilee region, the IDF said.

Sirens were activated throughout the region and on smartphone apps as part of the drill. The exercise came as tensions on Israel's northern border with Syria have increased in recent weeks with sporadic spillover from the civil war in Syria reaching Israeli territory.

While the IDF has retaliated with targeted strikes to such incidents, placing the onus on the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, the military has repeatedly stated that it does not seek to engage in the more than six-year conflict raging in Syria.
