Home front drills chemical attack on Jerusalem

Wednesday morning, the Israeli Home Front rehearsed a chemical-tipped missile attack on a Jerusalem suburb. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who watched, said the exercise is designed to protect Israeli civilians “from the threats pilling up around us.” Israel’s home front is the best protected in the world but also the most threatened, he said: “We must make sure that defense is in place before an attack.” With him at the exercise was Home Front minister Gilead Erdan and IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Ganz.
