IDF rehearses surprise large-scale call-up of reserves

The IDF tested automated call-up messages Monday for the first time to stage the surprise mobilization of reservists from all branches of the armed forces – air, land, sea and Home Front Command. Some reservists needed only to acknowledge receipt, but large numbers were told to report to recruitment centers to drill responses to different kinds of attack, including strikes against national infrastructure, rocket fire from the Gaza Strip or Lebanon and other war scenarios, including cyber attack. The Home Front Command will rehearse rescue operations in Holon and Neurim. The exercise lasts until Wednesday.
