Since February, there have been five rockets that have fallen in Israel, sent from Gaza. Code Red sirens have been sounded and all the rockets have fallen in unpopulated areas. Despite this, Israel has called up its Southern Command reservists for a surprise drill. The reservists will practice operational procedures in preparation for more aggressive activity from Gaza. Under terms and conditions from the end of Operation Protective Edge, the war with Hamas in 2014, there are to be no rockets fired at Israel. The Israeli Air Force has gone in and retaliated after these five rockets were fired from Gaza.
