IDF prepares for all-out war in next week’s drill
In preparation for the Home Front Command’s nationwide drill due to take place next week, new data about simulated scenarios have been published. These include an all-out attack on several fronts simultaneously, namely Gaza, Lebanon, the Syrian Golan Heights and Iran. The drill will prepare for a slew of missiles and rockets, 95% of which are assumed to be short-range (up to 45 km) and equipped with 10 kg of explosives.
