Air Force simulates aerial terror attack in South

Air Force simulates aeri

The Air Force staged a simulation of what it described as "an air-based terror attack" over the skies of southern Israel on Wednesday. Some of the participants were not told of the drill ahead of time, in order to test their responses. Air Force commanders and operational staff, as well as the political decision-making echelon, were asked to respond to the drill. The IDF Spokesperson Unit said the military "will continue do all that is necessary to protect Israeli residents and safeguard the skies. The drill was planned in advance and has no bearing to any current events."
