Operation Shield the North
By Micah Halpern
Israel has begun “Operation Shield the North”.
The purpose of this operation is to provide the residents who live in the northern part of Israel with bomb shelters to protect them from rockets and missiles that may be shot into Israel from Lebanon or from Syria.
All total, 21 communities that are situated on the border will have their existing shelters reinforced and new shelters built.
Operation Shield the North came about as a direct result of the 2020 comptrollers report which revealed that 30% of Israelis do not have access to functioning shelters in the event of a bombing.
Israel needs to prepare for an onslaught of rockets from the north. Until now, they have relied on interceptors like the Iron Dome. But interceptors can only shoot down so many rockets and missiles.
Citizens of Israel need to have safe, well built, well protected bomb shelters in which they can – when necessary, hunker down and wait out the storm.
