The IDF Home Front Command held an exercise Thursday testing its ability to cope with with a chemical weapons attack.

The exercise lasted from morning until noon, and included regular soldiers and reservists.

Major Gil Peretz, head of the Home Front Command's chemical warfare department, said that the exercise was part of the annual routine, and tested medical responses to as many as 100 injuries.
