The IDF Home Front Command held chemical weapon drills in the northern city of Nahariya on Monday, as a precaution due to the dire situation of the civil war in Syria, the IDF spokesman reported.

IDF medical teams, the Nahariya municipality and Health Ministry officials participated in the exercise.During the drills, an emergency testing and treatment center (ETC) was established in case of a chemical attack.



Nahariya is located 9.6 kilometers from the border with Lebanon, so the IDF has taken all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of Nahariya residents if the ongoing Syrian war should expand its fighting into Israel.
