The IDF Home Front Command is working with the Ministry of Defense Engineering and Construction Department to fortify homes in northern Israel.
This step is part of Defense Command's Northern Shield plan to build shelters in 21 Israeli settlements on the Lebanese border.
— bomb shelters — houses in the northern city of Shlomi, where most of the houses were built without built-in bomb shelters.
Additional proposals have been submitted with plans to build shelters in about a thousand houses.
Construction should also begin in the coming a few weeks in the Misgav Am community and 12 other cities.
According to Israeli media, the project officially started in October last year with the construction of new home air raid shelters in the Kfar Yuval community.
In 2020, the State Comptroller reported that approximately 30% of Israelis did not have access to functioning bomb shelters in or near their homes, including more than 250,000 residents of communities near the Lebanese and Gaza borders.
