A Problem That Must Be Fixed

A recent earthquake drill in Beit Shemesh revealed that in various areas in Ramat Beit Shemesh, the air raid sirens are not audible, Kikar Hashabbat reported.

During Operation Shield and Arrow, when rockets were fired towards Beit Shemesh, many residents said they did not hear the siren, and only found out about the rocket fire when they heard the explosions from the intercepts near their homes. The residents also did not hear the sirens sounded marking Israel’s Memorial Day.

Residents receive alerts from the Home Front Command APP. However, this is yet another example of why the application of sovereignty in Judea and Samaria must happen. Necessary services such as sirens must be audible and without places like Beit Shemesh receiving the same treatment as the rest of the country, the residents are not safe. Unacceptable!!
