More Gas Masks Expected to be Distributed
The Postal Authority will increase its distribution of gas masks during the upcoming “Turning Point” military drill, to take place next week. A spokesperson for the Authority said that more workers will be stationed at more distribution points, as the public pays more attention to the issue of security. Similar jumps in the distribution of gas masks have also risen during previous major security drills.
The drill will be nationwide, involving police, IDF troops, Homefront Comman officials, and rescue workers, and drills will be conducted at schools, army bases, government offices, and in public areas, such as malls.
