"Red Alert" song taught to children in civil defense training

At least one Qassam rocket landed in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council district at around 11 pm Sunday night after a series of Code Red incoming rocket alert sirens were triggered, beginning at around 10:30 pm.

Explosions were heard across the area, according to local sources. It was subsequently discovered that the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system had also intercepted several other rockets that were fired by Gaza terrorists at densely populated areas in southern Israel, according to a spokesperson for the Eshkol Regional Council.


“Residents are asked to act in accordance with standard civil defense directives, and to remain close to their protected spaces,” the spokesperson said.
