- More war mongering from Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit.
- IDF Completes Large-Scale Drill Along The Northern Border

Drill takes place as war-of-words head up between Israel and Iran.
With the war of words heating up between Israel and Iran, the IDF completed a large scale drill in northern Israel this week, simulating war against Hezbollah.
The drill was carried out by troops belonging to the 450th Battalion from the IDF’s School for Infantry Corps Professions & Squad Commanders (also known as Bislamach).
“This is important training for the next war in the North,” Lt.-Col. Liran Bitton of the 450th battalion told The Jerusalem Post. Bislamach is where troops are trained to become squad commanders and platoon sergeants.
“This course is the first one that they do as they go from [being a] soldier to officer. This course makes them an officer who has responsibility over some 12 soldiers,” Bitton said. “They understand themselves better, the purpose of their service and their responsibilities. It’s amazing to see the change.”
“The enemy challenges us on every front, but it’s not only the enemy. It’s also the territory and everything that goes with it – like fatigue, injuries and friends who don’t return from battle. You always have the responsibility on your shoulders, and that doesn’t change regarding the front. It’s a mental challenge.”
Israel and Hezbollah fought a 34-day war in 2006, and in recent months tensions have once again risen along the northern border.
In December, Israel launched Operation Northern Shield in order to detect and neutralize cross-border attack tunnels dug by the Iranian-backed Shi’ite organization. Jerusalem believes that the tunnels would have been used by Hezbollah’s elite Radwan unit to infiltrate into Israel in an attempt to take control of several communities and kill as many civilians and troops as possible.
