The Home Front Command launched a test of its Color Red sirens in villages and communities in the Gaza periphery at 6 p.m. Sunday evening.
The affected locations included: Ofakim, Netivot, Ashdod, Ashkelon and Beersheba.
Residents of those areas were asked to enter bomb shelters or other protected structures when they heard the alarm.
