A spokesman for Mayor Michael Bloomberg said a rocket alarm went off during his visit to an Israeli town Sunday causing him to take cover in an emergency operations center until an all-clear was sounded.
The mayor is spending the day in Israel to show support for the country as it battles Palestinian militants in Gaza.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and Queens congressman Gary Ackerman are also traveling with him.
They are scheduled to be back in the city by Monday morning.
