The Israeli Air Force is holding a drill over central Israel today as part of preparations for US President Joe Biden’s visit.
The military says the drill will end tonight.
Biden is slated to arrive in Israel on Wednesday afternoon, and depart on Friday.
Israel Police are also gearing up for the presidential visit, with more than 16,000 cops slated to work on protecting the elements of the trip and ensuring public order during Biden’s visit.
Many roads — including major highways — are slated to be shut at times during the visit, including Route 1, the main highway connecting Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, as well as portions of Route 6 near the airport on Wednesday.
Within Jerusalem, many main roads will be shut to traffic, in particular around the King David Hotel, where Biden will be staying, and near the Prime Minister’s Residence and the President’s Residence.
