The Israel Defense Forces announces it will be conducting an emergency preparedness exercise in the northern town of Pekiin and in the Ma’ale Yosef Regional Council over the next two days.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, 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 11:05 a.m. and 6:05 p.m. on both days.

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