Israel concludes series of military exercises in north of country

The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) has concluded a series of comprehensive exercises, encompassing both physical and virtual domains, to simulate warfare in the northern region of Israel and neighbouring Lebanon and Syria.

One of the drills, conducted by the Northern Command and Computer Service Directorate, focused on deploying forces and utilizing technological means, including combat in the digital realm.

The Northern Command also conducted an exercise involving its reserve forces to practice coordination among different departments.

Another drill, carried out by the 210th “Bashan” Regional Division, simulated various scenarios in Lebanon and Syria simultaneously.

The 282nd Artillery Regiment also conducted a separate drill, specifically focusing on swiftly transitioning from routine operations to emergency situations.

Furthermore, the elite Alpinist Unit reservists honed their skills in urban combat while preparing for complex missions.

These drills aim to enhance preparedness in the northern region. They take place amidst daily attacks by the Iran-backed Hezbollah group on northern Israel, alongside the ongoing conflict in the Gaza Strip.

Israel has issued warnings that it will no longer tolerate Hezbollah’s presence along its border and may resort to military action if a diplomatic solution is not achieved, with the objective of pushing Hezbollah further northward.
