The IDF launched on Sunday a major drill led by the military’s General Staff to improve its emergency response. During the drill, nationwide rocket sirens will be sounded twice on Tuesday.
The sirens will be activated as part of a Home Front Command drill known as “Solid Stand,” which will be carried out during the large-scale General Staff exercise. The sirens will be sounded on Tuesday at 11:05 AM and 7:05 PM.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit stressed that the exercise was scheduled in advance and is unrelated to the current security situation and the Israeli-American Juniper Cobra missile defense exercise.
The objective of the general staff exercise is to enhance the headquarters’ response to a variety of emergency and warfare scenarios and to improve the readiness and operational communication between the commands
