Israel to simulate biological warfare attack
An exercise simulating a response to a biological warfare attack will be carried out in the Dan region next week, Haaretz reported.
The exercise, code named Orange Flame, will be held on Wednesday and Thursday next week.
The exercise, which will be the largest of its kind in Israel's history, will be carried out in Tel Aviv, Ramat Gan, and Holon and aims to evaluate the ability of the Home Front, the medical services, rescue teams and the municipal authorities to respond in the conditions created by a biological catastrophe caused either by terrorists or by accident.
The purpose of the exercise is to "train the country to deal with biological terrorism attacks."
