Defense Ministry seeks to end years of uncertainty over Israel’s war preparedness

After many years of uncertainty over who has jurisdiction in the civilian home front during times of war, the Defense Ministry on Tuesday submitted a draft bill seeking to create order out of the chaos.

The bill, for the first time, would “regulate the division of labor and missions” between state institutions, local government, emergency services, and economic bodies, the Defense Ministry claimed.

If passed, it would stipulate who is responsible for the strategic stockpiling of goods or resources for wartime, and name those tasked with maintaining services and daily life during national emergencies.
