Israel Police chief Insp.-Gen. Moshe Karadi held a situation assessment Sunday evening, meeting with district and division commanders in order to plan the maintenance operational readiness as the rocket attacks on the North were about to enter their third week. The meeting was attended by OC Home Front Command Maj.-Gen. Yitzhak Gershon as well as representatives from emergency and rescue services. During the meeting, commanders from the police's Northern District presented response scenarios for rocket strikes on population centers. Over the past two weeks, police and fire services in the North have been at the heart of Israel's first response to rocket strikes, including cordoning off and controlling access to strike areas, rescuing wounded and fighting fires that erupt after Katyusha barrages. In addition, in recent days, looting and increased instances of car theft were reported in largely-evacuated northern cities such as Nahariya and Ma'alot.
