First-Ever Nuclear Drill Set for March

Israel next month will hold its first-ever nationwide drill on the possibility of a nuclear and chemical missile attack. The Home Front Command initiated the plan following last year's Hizbullah war and increasing threats of an Iranian missile attack.

The exercise will include simulation of a massive attack on Israeli cities, according to Magen David Adom rescue service spokesman Yerucham Madola.
