The killing of Iran Quds Force Commander, Qasem Soleimani, could bring Iran to seek revenge by targeting Israel, maybe through her proxy, Hezbollah, along the northern border. A staggering number of residents within the targeted communities will have no shelters to run to and nowhere to take cover.
A quarter of a million residents live within 9 km of the northern border. According to the Confrontation Forum, nearly 70,000 have no home security solutions and many more have no public shelters close by. 5 billion shekels were allocated for a protection program, but the program has yet to begin.
The Press Tour will include:
- A Briefing by Moshe Davidovich, Chairman of the Confrontation Line Forum and Head of Mateh Asher Regional Council;
- Briefings and meetings with community leaders, security officers and residents of Mateh Asher Regional Council, Ma’ale Yosef Regional Council and Shlomi Regional Council.
- Visits to shelters and other relevant locations.
