Israel Holds Emergency Drills, Preparing for War on Six Fronts
Air raid sirens sound as Israeli troops hold large war drills with visiting American soldiers
Last week at the graduation ceremony for new Israeli naval officers, IDF Deputy Chief of Staff Gen. Aviv Kochavi said that the Jewish state was preparing for war on no fewer than six fronts.
Kochavi did not list those fronts, except to say that Iran is among them.
The others can be guessed at: Egyptian Sinai, where ISIS holds sway; Hamas-ruled Gaza; Lebanon; Syria; and the cyber realm.
Of course, many of those other threats are being encouraged and even financed by Iran.
This week, Israel launched massive war drills together with 2,500 visiting American soldiers.
As part of those drills, air raid sirens sounded throughout the country on Tuesday, unfortunately frightening those who were unaware it was just an exercise.Want more news from Israel?
