Last week, soldiers of the IDF (Zahal) Home Front Command’s search and rescue unit conducted an all-night drill.

The drill was conducted at the ruins of a commercial building.

During the drill, soldiers lifted stones with heavy equipment and rescued “injured” persons.

The drill simulated a mall collapsing in a major city due to a bomb explosion.
