The Israeli military called up reservists for a surprise drill on the 38th anniversary of the start of the Yom Kippur War.

Two reserve divisions in central and northern Israel were mobilized Wednesday evening and participated in the exercise until Thursday afternoon, according to reports.

The exercise was held due to events in the region, Ynet reported. The divisions were declared to be ready by military officials.

Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz, the Israeli military’s chief of staff, observed the exercise.
