      Sirens sounded nationwide at 12:30 p.m. Monday as part of a national home front drill that began Sunday and will last until Wednesday.

      Sirens are scheduled to sound again at 7:05 p.m. Monday. Citizens are expected to enter the protected spaces in their homes during this siren.

      The IDF decided not to hold the drill in the Gaza Belt communities, in order to spare the children there the unnecessary trauma.
