IDF to hold emergency readiness drills in Or Yehuda, Shafir Regional Council and Kfar Adumim

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

The Israel Defense Forces announces it will be conducting several emergency preparedness exercises tomorrow in the central city of Or Yehuda, the Shafir Regional Council, and the West Bank settlement of Kfar Adumim.

When the sirens sound at 10:05 a.m. in Or Yehuda, residents and workers are expected to find their nearest bomb shelters to prepare them for a possible real rocket attack, the IDF says.

Separately at 10:15 a.m., an earthquake alert will sound in the Shafir Regional Council, and at 7:05 p.m., a terrorist infiltration alert will sound in Kfar Adumim.

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