IDF to hold emergency preparedness drill in south

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces announces it will be conducting an emergency preparedness exercise in the southern Merhavim Regional Council tomorrow.

When the sirens sound, residents and workers in the area are expected to find their nearest bomb shelters to prepare them for a possible real rocket barrage, the IDF says.

The sirens will sound at 7:05 p.m., 7:15 p.m., and 7:25 p.m.

In case of a real emergency during the test, the sirens will sound a second time, the army says.
