July 15, 2006 22:21

A Katyusha warning system will be placed in southern Haifa on Sunday, Home Front Commander Yitzhak Gershon said on Saturday night. The system will sound the alarm a minute before the rockets hit the ground in order for residents to seek shelter. Residents who had previously been asked not to leave their houses are requested to stay in the vicinity of shelters despite the activation of the warning system. In addition, they are requested to not go to work on Sunday, unless they are employed by businesses providing essential services to citizens.
