    Sirens Just Sounded in Jerusalem


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     At 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, nomadicjames heard sirens going off in Jerusalem before he heard four distinct blasts. Four rockets were fired over Jerusalem on Thursday, Israel's military said, but two of them were intercepted by the Iron Dome. Read more on CNN.

    nomadicjames, an American expat who has lived in Jerusalem since 2010 and before that during the second intifada, ran into the stairwell to wait it out. “It’s not as nerve wracking as it is for somebody who just came here,” he said.

    “If you’re in Jerusalem, you have 90 seconds to get into your safe room,” he said. “That’s the government’s guidance. That’s how long it takes the rockets to get here from Gaza.”

    About 10 minutes ago, the sirens went off here in Jerusalem. We heard 5 separate explosions in the distance. Not sure where they landed. Here is a video of the sirens.
