A secret police report on a widespread police exercise carried out about four months ago has disclosed serious flaws and shortcomings, according to Israel Radio.

The radio said that because of the sensitivity of the subject, no details of the report are being disclosed, but senior officials are said to be studying it to learn what immediate steps should be taken to improve the situation.

The exercise covered a number of simultaneous incidents, including the firing of katyusha rockets, explosive charges, attempted infiltration by terrorists, and the hijacking of vehicles and the taking of hostages for bargaining purposes.
