The IDF recommends that Israelis manually set their location on the Home Front Command app to receive rocket alerts, amid reports of widespread disruptions to navigation apps such as Google Maps, Waze, and other systems that use global positioning system (GPS).

The GPS signal disruptions have been part of the IDF’s efforts to prevent attacks on Israel.

GPS disruptions have been happening for months, especially in northern Israel and areas close to Gaza, but have been less common in central Israel.
