A document warning of an extreme war scenario in the North and recommending preparations for several days of electricity blackout circulated among Justice Ministry employees on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the National Emergency Authority urged all government ministries to develop plans for a week-long blackout, anticipating a large-scale exercise said to occur in mid-February. Similar letters were also sent to directors of geriatric institutions.

In the North, as part of the anticipated disruptions caused by the war, damage to electricity infrastructure is “expected, leading to a potential disaster,” stated the National Emergency Authority document.
