Rocket sirens sounded across Tel Aviv-Jaffa on Monday as part of a nationwide drill.

The drill, the military's Home Front Command said, is designed to test "preparedness for rocket and missile fire" and the city's early warning systems, the Israeli army said. As part of the exercise, sirens have sounded in northern and central Israel and in Jerusalem.

The test lasted from 8:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M., with sirens sounding in a different part of the city every 10 minutes. Central Tel Aviv heard the siren at 10:05, south Tel Aviv and Jaffa at 10:15, the eastern part of the city at 10:25 and the Yarkon area at 10:35.
