IDF Home Front Command: Likelihood of all-out Middle East war increasing
Home Front Command chief says Middle East regional war could include use of weapons of mass destruction; warns that Arab Spring may turn into 'Radical Islamic Winter'.
The likelihood of an all-out regional war in the Middle East is increasing, the head of the IDF Home Front Command said on Monday, Channel 10 reported.
Speaking to the Institute for National Security Studies, Major General Eyal Eisenberg said that such a conflict could potentially include the use of weapons of mass destruction.
Eisenberg cautioned that the Arab Spring could turn into the "Radical Islamic Winter".
Eisenberg also noted that a new weapon was used by Gaza militants in the recent round of escalation in the south, which led the Home Front Command to instruct the public to seek shelter under two roofs, rather than one.
