On Thursday (November 3), the Homefront Command held a large exercise in central Israel.

“The drill is not meant for civilians, but for us and the emergency services,” said Colonel Adam Zussman, the Homefront Command’s head of the Dan region. “We are training the regular and reserve forces, emergency services, local authorities and government ministries.” 

Col. Zussman said the drill was planned well in advance.

As part of the exercise, a siren sounded in Tel Aviv and other parts of the Dan region at 10:05 a.m.
