The defense establishment will hold a special emergency drill this week, simulating an enemy strike on Israel’s nuclear facility.
“Operation Fernando” will aim to test the defense establishment’s readiness for the worst case scenario – a missile strike on the facility itself or its immediate surroundings, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
The drill, whose details have been classified as top secret, is scheduled for Tuesday. Given its classification, only a handful of senior defense establishment officials are privy to its outline.
The Israel Atomic Energy Commission will oversee the drill, along with the Home Front Command and Ministry for Home Front Defense.
