The Yo App's Newest Use: Alerting Israelis To Palestinian Rocket Attacks

In an unusual retooling, novelty app Yo is now being used to alert Israelis abroad of rocket attacks.

The notifications are being conducted by Yo in conjunction with the Israeli Color Red app, an unofficial, self-described "propaganda tool" that sends push notifications of rocket explosions. Following a recent surge in Israeli-Palestinian violence, the Israeli army is currently conducted an offensive in Gaza and more than 100 rockets were fired from Gaza at Israel within the past 24 hours. The two sides are engaged in the fiercest fighting since 2012.

Not used the Yo app but this sounds pretty useful.

I wonder if Palestinians could get an option alerting them of Israeli attacks. Never good to have innocent people being blown up on either side.

Im telling you. You have one side shooting a fire cracker every now and then. The other side responds with a freaking cannon lol.

Both sides need the app.
