PM Netanyahu Holds Special Discussion on Learning the Lessons of Operation
Pillar of Defense Regarding the Home Front

(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today (Sunday, December 23 2012), held a
special discussion, on learning the lessons of Operation Pillar of Defense,
with the main agencies that deal with the home front. Attending the
discussion were ministers and director-generals from the relevant
ministries: Home Front Defense, Defense, Health, Finance, Interior, Social
Welfare and Social Services, and Public Security, as well as the heads of
IDF Home Front Command, the Israel Police, the Fire and Rescue Service and
Magen David Adom.

Participants presented the main lessons from Operation Pillar of Defense
especially points for strengthening and improvement.

Prime Minister Netanyahu decided on how to implement the lessons in various
areas such as improving shelters, integrating warning systems, reinforcing
essential facilities, upgrading command and control systems, dealing with
bureaucratic impediments, etc.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said, "Home front agencies performed very
successfully during the operation, saved the lives of many citizens, and
allowed daily life and vital services to be maintained in a situation of
prolonged missile fire. Our intention is to continue to improve. The home
front is one of the main fronts in any security scenario; therefore, the
Government will continue to invest in it."

Prime Minister Netanyahu instructed all elements to present him with the
status of the implementation of the lessons in the coming weeks.
