(Worthy News) - Over a thousand IDF reservists are in the midst of a large-scale drill in the West Bank, training to stop terror threats against Israeli civilians by Palestinian terrorists as Defense Minister Naftali Bennett and IDF Chief of Staff Lieutenant-General Aviv Kochavi toured a drill in the Golan Heights.
The weeklong drill in the West Bank began on Sunday with the call-up to the two battalions of reservists and will end on Thursday. It saw live-fire exercises in the field as well as simulators and Krav Maga courses for the reservists.
Colonel Ori Levi, Commander of the Central Command’s Lachish Training School, told The Jerusalem Post that he wanted to “challenge the troops” during the drill. According to Levy, to the soldier in the field, it doesn’t matter if there may be a group behind a cell – the lone wolves have to be stopped before carrying out an attack.
