Israel practices national preparedness for war, mass evacuations

The IDF “Exercise Turning Point 15” was launched across Israel Sunday with the accent on the functioning of national infrastructure services including, water, power, gas and food supplies for populations affected by a multi-front and/or massive terrorist attack. Large-scale evacuations of civilians will also be tested. Taking part in the exercise lasting until June 4 will be the army, air force, navy, homeland command, the National Emergency branch of the defense ministry, other government ministries, local councils, Magen David, hospitals and the fire brigade. Sirens will alert the population to simulated attacks, excluding the communities around the Gaza Strip which get enough practice from real alerts.
