Schools across the country participated in the national security drill held on Monday in order to strengthen preparedness of the education system in the event of missile attacks.

As the alarm was sound at 12:30 pm, teachers and pupils were required to leave the classrooms and rehearse evacuation into protected spaces.

In addition, students practiced operating  the  distance learning program, which allows students to participate in online lessons with their teacher and classmates in the event that, for security reasons, they will not be able to meet at school.
