Israel in Earthquake Drill
By Micah Halpern
Israeli forces will hold an international earthquake exercise from March 12th to the 25th. The exercise will be led by the Defense Ministry’s National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA).
The announcement came from the ministry’s spokesperson. The move comes nearly a month after the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria that claimed the lives of over forty-six thousand people. The exercise will be “focused on receiving international aid in the case of an earthquake together with Israeli emergency and rescue agencies.” It will simulate all necessary emergency procedures including the initial decision to request international assistance, integrating foreign rescue teams, distributing aid to various locations within the country, and the receival process of international aid.
Hopefully, this will remain an exercise and never need to be implemented.
