Israeli Exercise Simulates Missile Attack

Israel reacted to simulated strikes involving unconventional missiles as part of an exercise initiated around Tel Aviv on Thursday, Agence France-Presse reported (see GSN, June 20).

"The rescue units of the civil defense, police, fire service and Magen David Adom (emergency services) will participate in the exercise," the Israeli army said in a statement.

Col. Adam Zussman said emergency responders were deployed to "evacuate hundreds of wounded" to medical centers taking part in the drill following the mock "conventional and nonconventional missile attacks."

"We are going to test all the possible scenarios, including attacks causing significant damage," Zussman told army radio.

Authorities would hand out protective masks, and shelters and other support facilities in the area would enter operation, according to Israeli news reports (Agence France-Presse/Spacewar.com, Nov. 3).
