(Worthy News) - The Israeli military on Monday said it was testing a new, more exact incoming rocket alert system in the north of the country as part of a larger exercise taking place this week.
This new system operates by only sounding in individual communities where a threat is identified, unlike the current array of sirens, which are triggered throughout a larger region.
The military says the more pinpointed warnings to specific “polygons,” as the army refers to the smaller sections, will allowing civilians who are not directly in harm’s way to continue going about their lives. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
