The IDF is gearing for the possibility of an armed conflict on several fronts and has decided to boost the munitions and supply reserves in a large number of military bases across Israel, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.

 

The Friday report said that the IDF plans to store tens of thousands of rations and non-classified ordnances in private locations nationwide, as the location of the major bases is known and they may be targeted by enemy rockets.

Military sources told the newspaper that the IDF understands that the next war is likely to take place on multiple fronts, prompting the decision to disperse supplies across all bases, as a precautionary measure.

 

Colonel Nissim Peretz, of the IDF's Central Technological, Logistics, and Medical Directorate, headed the project. The military's reserves were prioritized and dispersed accordingly and the defense establishment has also decided to bolster the defenses of all strategic warehouses.

 

Technology and Logistics Directorate Chief Maj.-Gen. Kobi Barak has also issued a special tender for private companies, to use their warehouses for military storage purposes.

 

The companies entering and winning the bid will be required to abide by rigorous confidentially standards and will also need to prove what the IDF has called "reasonable fortification measures."

 

The IDF also plans to use the facilities of several civilian defense contractors for its purposes.
