The 10-day exercise covers different landscapes and fields of combat, and is being conducted in cooperation with the Israeli Air Force.

The war-readiness training was the unit’s sixth brigade-wide exercise since December 2015 and has been observed by Israeli Defense Forces’ Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot.

Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, is believed to possess approximately 10,000 rockets and mortar shells, and has fought three wars with Israel in the past decade, not including the skirmish with Israel just this month.

Iran-funded Hezbollah to Israel’s north is believed to possess more than 100,000 rockets and missiles, and is believed to have more might than the military forces of individual nations.
