Israel: School kids drill for possible rocket attacks

Children at Rothschild School in Jerusalem joined nation-wide security and emergency drills on Tuesday. As sirens sounded, children were ushered into sheltered areas of the school so as to prepare them for potential future rocket attacks. Israel is currently engaged in a five day-long period of exercises which began last Sunday and are due to last until Thursday. The drill involves all areas of Israeli society, including the Home Front Command, the Ministry of Defense's National Emergency Authority (NEA), government ministries, local authorities, security organizations, the education system, and public and private entities.
