IDF Conducts Exercises to Prepare for Combat Deep in Lebanon

Troops of the 146st Division and the reserve 205th Armored Brigade carried out exercises simulating maneuvers in Lebanon, the military said on Monday, May 27. The military exercise included a simulation of combat in the North, the rapid deployment of forces in the area, and troops’ preparedness for the attack.

In parallel, forces carried out an exercise in which they learned about daytime and nighttime operational models that simulate warfare deep inside Lebanese territory. The IDF also stated that troops exercised fighting in a built-up area and advancing on mountainous terrain, among others.

Concurrently, the IDF continued striking terror targets in southern Lebanon. A UAV struck a motorcycle in the area of Bint Jbeil in southern Lebanon on Monday, Israeli media reported citing Lebanese reports.

Later on Monday, the IDF said jets had carried out a strike in the Aynata area in southern Lebanon, killing a Hezbollah terrorist who had been identified in the area from which launches had been fired into the area of the northern Israeli town of Malkia earlier that day.

The military further noted jets had attacked a Hezbollah military structure in the Aitaroun area of southern Lebanon. (JPost / VFI News)
