Air raid sirens to sound in north as part of routine exercise

Air raid sirens will be sounded in areas of the north and the coastal plain on Wednesday morning as part of a routine exercise meant to test the country’s early warning system and emergency preparedness, the IDF Spokesperson’s Office said in a statement on Tuesday.

The siren will go off at 10:05am in the Carmel Forests region, Hof HaCarmel region, the Wadi Ara region, and Hadera and surrounding areas.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Office said that the air raid siren will also be accompanied by a test of the emergency broadcast system which will cut into the broadcast on stations Radio Haifa (99.5FM) and the Arabic language station Radio al-Shams (98.1FM).

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit stated on Tuesday that the exercise was planned well in advance as part of a series of training exercises held this year to test emergency readiness.
