The Magen David Adom rescue services tells its ambulance drivers to use different warnings so that the public won’t confuse them with the wailing of rocket sirens.

“It is important in these times to show maximum sensitivity to the feelings of the Israeli public. In order to prevent unnecessary panic, I have this morning instructed Magen David Adom’s teams to use the ambulance sirens sensibly and use other means that are available to them,” says MDA Director General Eli Bin.
