Is something big on the horizon?

Watch a video of this report here:


Hundreds of thousands of Israelis are being called up on extremely short notice by the IDF to participate in emergency readiness drills.

An IDF source has said: ‘We want to ensure that the system is well-oiled and working.’

The Israeli Navy and Air Force are also participating in the drills and are looking to test emergency intelligence gathering for purpose of conducting air strikes. Perhaps Iran is the would-be target.

The drills are expected to also cause major disruption in certain public areas, which is why many Israeli citizens are now expressing outrage against the continued militarism.

Wildfires and other forms of ecological damage are said to be caused by the drilling that the IDF conducts. Israel’s National Parks Authority says 60 fires have been caused by drills since April this year.

Moreover, the Israeli Environmental Protection Ministry has accused the IDF of being the country’s number one polluter. A representative for the ministry said ‘The IDF today is the biggest environmental wrongdoer in Israel.’
