Fearing a future war with Syria, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz held a surprise drill inspection of two key military bases in northern Israel on Sunday to ensure that they will be able to continue operating in the event of significant missile attacks.

Commanders at the bases - one a critical ammunition depot and the other a key maintenance base for IDF armored vehicles - were surprised when Gantz and other senior officers arrived at the' gates of their bases to review operations there.

A senior IDF officer who participated in the inspections said that they were aimed at ensuring the military's readiness for a wide range of scenarios including possible war with Syria as well as additional border demonstrations like those held over the weekend.
