Representatives from the communities in northern Israel that are part of the “Confrontation Line” group will meet on Sunday for an urgent meeting to address the recent reports that Iran is planning to launch a missile attack on Israel. During the forum, the residents will discuss the security situation in the north and the existing warning and protection protocols.

Despite the fact that the local authorities were instructed by the IDF to continue with their normal routines, the group decided to review the procedures and provide information to the public on rocket shelters.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Monday that the IDF is prepared for every possible Iranian move. “There’s no room for all this hysteria and panic,” Liberman said. “We have no interest in an escalation [with Iran] but we are ready for every scenario. This is our duty.”

The "Confrontation Line" group includes Beit Jann, Gush Halav, the Upper Galilee, Hurfeish, Hatzor, Yesod HaMa'ala, Kfar Vradim, Kasra Samia, Mevo'ot Hermon, Mazra'a, Migdal, Metula, Mate Asher, Ma'ale Yosef, Meilya, Maalot Tarshiha, Nahariya, Peki'in, Fassuta, Kiryat Shmona, Shlomi and Tefen.
