Defense Minister Yoav Gallant warned Monday that Israel will face unprecedented challenges during the next potential war with Iran and its various proxies, such as Lebanese terror group Hezbollah.
“If, God forbid, a war occurs, the Israeli home front is expected to face challenges the likes of which we have never known in our 75 years of existence. This requires us to be prepared in advance, with optimal preparation,” said Gallant in remarks provided by his office.
Gallant made the comments on a visit to the IDF Home Front Command headquarters in the central city of Ramle, as the military conducted a large-scale, two-week drill simulating a multifront war.
“The function of the home front, at all its levels, has great importance and a decisive role. As in any arena, even on the home front, we are committed to thorough and early preparations, for optimal performance in an emergency,” Gallant said.
“We must prepare for the most severe scenarios, in which we will have to face many challenges. Only the successful functioning of the home front… will allow the IDF and the defense establishment to fulfill the tasks on the frontier,” he added.
