Sirens in N. Israel incorrectly dismissed as “technical glitch”

The alert sirens heard in more than one area of northern Israel Sunday were dismissed by the army spokesman as a ”false alarm” caused by a technical malfunction of the siren system. DEBKAfile: This depiction is inaccurate. Sirens cannot go off in two separate adjoining geographical areas as a result of a technical malfunction. They were either triggered by a rocket or other projectile coming in from Syria or Lebanon – or, as in this case, when the siren systems’ sensors picked up a flying object moving over the two areas during a large-scale IDF war game.
