A strategically vital military base in the central region completed a drill in recent days aimed at maintaining operations while coming under heavy missile fire.

The drill reflects the IDF’s assessment that in the next round of fighting with Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shi’ite terrorist organization will direct missile and rocket attacks at military nerve centers deep inside Israel. The exercise took place at the Maintenance and Restoration Center at Tel Hashomer base near Ramat Gan, where Merkava 4 tanks and other armored vehicles are manufactured and repaired.

“The aim was to allow a forum of commanders under the IDF’s Technology and Logistics Branch to... maintain functional continuity,” the IDF Spokesman Office said. The drill was led by the head of Technology and Logistics Branch, Maj.-Gen. Kobi Barak, who was joined by 150 senior officers.
