Ministers to discuss plan for evacuation of hundreds of thousands of Israelis to Eilat, Arava area in case of missile attack
The Ministerial Committee on Home Front Affairs is set to discuss a plan for a mass evacuation in the event of a missile attack next week.
According to the plan, entire cities will be moved to southern Israel around Eilat and the Arava area.
One source at the Home Front Protection Ministry said that towns near Ariel may also serve as temporary evacuation centers.

The plan also applies to cases of natural disasters at the national level and is a reworking of one of Israel's contingency plans.
According to the plan, citizens of central and northern Israel will be housed in schools, educational establishments and even boarding schools,
bed and breakfasts and hotels in cases of national emergency.
The Housing Ministry will prepare a plan for the establishment of temporary housing facilities including tents and caravans.
Local councils acting as hosts will provide for the evacuees for a period of one week and each family will receive a
NIS 150 (roughly $39) allowance from the Finance Ministry.
Evacuees will also receive transportation and security services. Four toilet stalls and 3 showers will be allocated for groups of 100.
Evacuees will also receive laundry services and each child will be given NIS 100 (roughly $26) for school supplies.
Home Front Protection Minister Matan Vilnai said that after a briefing from the national security adviser, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu green-lighted the plan.
It will be introduced at various government ministers after being approved by the ministerial committee.
Word From Yerushalaim wrote (email)
This morning as I was in prayer the scripture that came to me was from Isaiah 41:8-14.
Our help is in the Lord, but most of Israel has yet to believe this, including most of our governmental leaders.
Isaiah 41:8 But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.
9 Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee,
Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.
10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
11 Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
12 Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
14 Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
And there is no doubt that because of spiritual blindness our leaders do not know how to call upon the Lord, or trust Him.
But this task belongs to the body of Messiah, and I want to encourage you all to join with the body of Messiah in Israel praying for this through.
