Saudi authorities announced they will test warning sirens in Riyadh, Dilam, Diriyah, and Kharj on Thursday, September 19. The test is scheduled to take place at 13:00 (local time) and aims at ensuring the proper functioning of the state's siren system.
The siren warning test comes as tensions remain high in the country and throughout the Gulf region following Houthi-claimed drone attacks that caused fires at major facilities in Buqayq (Eastern province) and at the Khurais oil field on Saturday, September 14.
Individuals in Saudi Arabia are advised to monitor developments to the situation, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments. In the event of a missile attack, individuals should seek shelter in the strongest building area, remain as far away from windows as possible, and avoid touching any debris on the ground, which may be very corrosive.
