Israel: nowhere to run

The government is considering a home-front plan to evacuate hundreds of thousands of Tel Aviv-area residents in the event of rocket attacks. But what is the point?

If Hezbollah and Syria were to attack us with mid-range rockets, some 5 million rather than “hundreds of thousands” of residents would need to be evacuated. From Greater Tel Aviv alone, 1.5 million people would have to be moved. But moved where?

Our southern regions are just as vulnerable to attacks from Gaza, where Palestinian factions have accumulated some 50,000 rockets, many of them not so crude.
