IDF preparing for war?

The IDF undertook a couple of drills this past week that indicate that it is preparing for war.
The first drill, by the Home Front Command, included the emergency rapid distribution of gas masks, in the event of an attack threat before the army completes the regular distribution, due to begin within a few months.

IDF officials emphasized that the exercise did not involve the deployment of forces in the field.

They said the main objective was to play out scenarios for the benefit of various think-tank units charged with anticipating operational dilemmas in the event of war or national emergency.

The second drill was held by the Paratroops Brigade in the north and simulated various combat scenarios against Syria and Hezbollah.
The first drill is quite interesting. I wonder how quickly they can distribute the masks, given that it took them months to collect them.

There is no doubt Israel is going to have act soon again Iran. Time is running out and its too late for sanctions to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb.
