Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Israel is "among the leading in the world" in home front defense during a visit to a Home Front Command base on Tuesday.

"It is no coincidence that we appointed a Home Front Defense Minister," Netanyahu said, referring to Matan Vilnai, "because we attribute supreme importance to defending the home front, since over the past decades, and especially in the last decade, it has become a front in every sense of the word."

Netanyahu added: "The strengths here are impressive.  I believe that they contribute to our national fortitude, deterrent ability and resilience; we will continue to develop them.  I think that this also finds expression in recent Government decisions that added budgets to Home Front Command and provided for new measures.
