It’s only a matter of time before the sirens are no longer a drill.
Sirens sound in home front drill

Air raid sirens sounded across the country at 11 a.m. on Tuesday as part of a week-long, country-wide war drill dubbed “Turning Point Three.”
When the sirens went off, citizens made their way to designated safe rooms, while schoolchildren were led to bomb shelters and shown a 20-minute film on safety procedures.
Nevertheless, the exercise was by no means flawless. At one beachfront Tel Aviv hotel, employees were given three minutes to move to the building’s shelters, but guests were not included.
Also, residents of various cities and locales nationwide complained that they didn’t hear the siren. In one Tel Aviv neighborhood, the air raid sirens could not be heard. And in the city of Rehovot, south of Tel Aviv, a worker struggled to unlock the door of a neighborhood bomb shelter as two women watched from the sidewalk.
