Israel ‘the most threatened state in the world,’ says PM
Concluding a three-day nationwide defense drill, Netanyahu warns of ‘tens of thousands of missiles and rockets’ aimed at civilians
Facing the threat of thousands of enemy rockets, Israel’s home front is more vulnerable than ever, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday at a meeting concluding this week’s home front drill, which tested the country’s readiness for chemical and conventional rocket attacks.
“We are deep in the era of missiles that are aimed at civilian population areas,” Netanyahu said during a meeting of the Emergency Economy Committee. “We must prepare defensively and offensively for the new era of warfare. The State of Israel is the most threatened state in the world. Around us are tens of thousands of missiles and rockets that could hit our home front.”

Golan Heights villages brace for war as tensions rise between Syria and Israel
Food and medical supplies are stockpiled and bomb shelters prepared as Bashar al-Assad threatens to open new front
One-year-old Angie stretches out her small hand towards the cherries and peaches on display outside a grocery shop in the village of Majdal Shams, on the slopes of the Golan Heights, while her mother explains why she is stockpiling food and has cleaned out her family’s bomb shelter.
“Anyone here who looks at the current situation knows you need to prepare, especially food for the kids. Adults can wait to eat while fighting goes on outside but if your child wants milk,” she says, pointing towards Angie, who is now howling with tears of frustration, “you’d better have milk to give them.”
Angie’s mother, who asked not to be named, has been stocking up on rice, canned food, oil and wheat for the last week. She listens to news reports of missiles from Russia and Israeli air strikes, she hears the cracks of gunfire and thuds of mortars just minutes away in Syria and feels the war coming closer.
“There is an atmosphere of fear now. Everyone is preparing for war, not just me,” she says.
