Danon: Samaria is the True Home Front


Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon said on Wednesday that in case of a war, Samaria will serve as a huge shelter for residents of central Israel.

Danon, who took part in the annual Home Front defense drill, said, "Gush Dan’s true home front, both during times of routine and during times of emergency, is in Samaria, in the heart of the country. The Israeli communities in Samaria are the real Iron Dome during an emergency. In situations of national emergency, the residents of Samaria are prepared to absorb tens of thousands of residents from northern and central Israel.”
