Israel mocks up evacuation in preparation for alleged war


An Israeli study reviewed procedures and cooperation among various concerned institutions in dealing with a large-scale attack.

Nationwide drill next week aims to ready the homefront for a scenario in which Hamas and Hezbollah unleash massive missile attack, Israeli sources said. “We are ready to evacuate tens of thousands, in the south and the north,” says National Emergency Management Authority (RAHEL) head, Bezalel Treiber.

The closer to the border fence the settler is the earlier the evacuation will take place,” he added. Next week’s National Emergency Week drill will witness the evacuation of tens of thousands of settlers from their homes.

A poll conducted by RAHEL ahead of National Emergency Week showed that in the case of a massive missile attack, only 14% of Israelis will want to be evacuated from their settlement units.
