IDF to hold massive training exercise at Ben Gurion Airport

The IDF’s Home Front Command will hold an exercise in the Ben Gurion International Airport on Monday, the army says.

Beginning in the morning and lasting through the evening, travelers in the airport will notice troops moving through the terminal building and surrounding area, the army says.

The IDF “stresses that this exercise was planned ahead of time as part of the [security services’] training schedule for 2017” and is not a response to any new threat.
