(Worthy News) - The Israeli military this week concluded a combined urban and tunnel warfare exercise simulating fighting in the Gaza Strip. The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said the drill, the 11th of its kind to be held this year, was part of the military's routine wartime readiness program.
But according to official, the timing of the drill, just two weeks after the the worst flare-up on the Israel-Gaza Strip border since 2014, as well as the fact that it included extreme case scenarios, was meant as a message to Hamas, the terrorist group that rules Gaza.
The drill, which concluded on Wednesday, was led by the Kfir Brigade, the largest infantry brigade in the IDF. It included Engineering and Armored corps' forces, as well as the canine special forces unit, Oketz. [ Source: Israel Hayom (Read More...) ]
