Israeli Schools Drill for Missile Attack Amid Threats From Iran

School children undergo emergency missile attack drill as IDF warns chances of war with Iran higher than ever

By |

Elementary schools across Israel held emergency missile attack drills this week, as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu engaged in a frightening war of words with Iran.

Speaking Sunday at the Munich Security Conference, Netanyahu denounced Iran for probing Israeli defenses a week earlier with a drone, a piece of which the Israeli leader held aloft.

Israel responded to that incident by bombing Iranian military installations in Syria. Netanyahu warned that future incidents could see Israel take direct military action against Iran.

Mohsen Rezaei, secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council and former chief of the country’s Revolutionary Guards, said Netanyahu had spoken foolishly, and invited destruction upon the Jewish state.

"About Netanyahu’s unwise words, I should say that if they carry out the slightest unwise move against Iran, we will level Tel Aviv to the ground," Rezaei told Hezbollah's Al-Manar television station.

Israel's Homefront Command cautioned that the potential for war between Israel and Iran (possibly via its proxies in Syria and Lebanon) are higher than ever.

As part of its preparations for such a scenario, Israeli grade schools held exercises and drills to prepare students for a potential missile attack on the Jewish state.

Homefront Command officials were on hand at many schools, as children prepared for the worst. Teachers also gave their students homework aimed at readying them for the likelihood of a regional conflagration.
