Israel drafts new defence doctrine

Dec 9 2013, 4:26pm CST | by IANS

Jerusalem, Dec 10 (IANS) Israel's security establishment has drawn up a new defence doctrine, as the country's political actors are increasingly expressing worry over the welfare of the Jewish state in the region, The Jerusalem Post reported Monday.

Jerusalem, Dec 10 — Israel's security establishment has drawn up a new defence doctrine, as the country's political actors are increasingly expressing worry over the welfare of the Jewish state in the region, The Jerusalem Post reported Monday.

The daily, citing senior military sources, said that the six-layered doctrine, devised by the defence ministry, the Home Front Command and the general staff of the army, aims to provide better responses to the threat of rockets and missiles in wartime, Xinhua reported.

The first two layers are deterrence and diplomacy, tools that can be used to "build alliances and take apart enemies" without resorting to military force, the Post quoted a source as saying.

In the event that these two fail, a decisive preemptive strike, coupled with the activation of Israel's multitude of air defences, which comprise the doctrine's third and fourth layers, respectively, would be set in motion.

The fifth layer is passive defences, such as air raid sirens and bomb shelters, and the sixth and last layer centres on the conduct of civilians at a time of war, the report said.

The doctrine comes at a time when Israeli officials are increasingly concerned about its neighbours' growing arsenals of rockets and missiles that can be used against heavily populated urban centres in a future conflict.

A senior Israeli officer last month said that Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah currently stocks some 100,000 projectiles, some of which are capable of striking the Red Sea port of Eilat at Israel's southernmost tip with a one-tonne warhead.

According to Monday's report, Hezbollah had increased its stocks of long-range rockets from 500 to 5,000 since the second Lebanon war in 2006, prompting the Home Front Command to step up emergency preparations for minimising the impact on the civilian population during war.

"One cannot say that there is a front and a home front. The enemy sees the home front as the front in every way," said a military source.

Nazi Gas Chambers Used in Poland Discovered during Archaeological Dig

This week, some seventy years after the Holocaust, a death camp was uncovered in Sobibor, Poland, where about 250,000 Jews were exterminated at the hands of the Nazis. Nazi Germany committed a great deal of resources attempting to cover up the atrocities they committed against six million Jews and others during the Holocaust, but Yad Vashem, Israel’s memorial to the victims of the Holocaust in Jerusalem, announced the finding on Wednesday after an archaeological dig found ...
