The Israel Defense Forces says it will hold a test of siren systems and emergency preparedness in the central city of Rishon Lezion later today.

The sirens will sound in the eastern part of the city at 6:05 p.m. and in the western part at 6:15 p.m.

Residents of the area are asked to enter bomb shelters when they hear the sirens and to ensure that their shelters are stocked for an emergency.

In the case of an actual attack, the sirens will sound twice, the military says.
