The IDF Home Front Command kicked off its first national earthquake drill on Sunday. The command, together with all emergency services and government ministries, were simulating a major earthquake causing 7,000 “casualties.”

“This is an opportunity for the general public and local authorities to prepare for emergencies which could catch us by surprise,” a Home Front Command source said last week.
