A senior officer of the Israeli Defence forces has told the Jerusalem Post, that if war breaks out in Lebanon, IDF troops will cross the border, adding that the Israeli army has held a series of military drills “for war against Hezbollah” in recent weeks.
Israeli Artillery Corps 282 Support Unit has been staging military exercises to train for the war against Hezbollah in the Jordan Valley for five days.
The officer also said that despite annual training, this year it was different, as a huge amount of military and live fire was deployed, however
“What is special in our unit is its fusion of a variety of surface-based firepower,” he said.
The unit can use cannons to hit various ground targets, employ a radar battalion that can locate an enemy and give warning of any incoming fire.
One more huge drill was performed by the Northern Command’s 36th reserve Armored Division, which simulated a Lebanese battleground.
The conflict between the two states has also been intensified by Hezbollah’s dealings with ISIL forces which are rampaging Syria and Iraq.
