rising tensions with Syria.


A similar drill was held a month before the Second Lebanon War and both list the participation of ground, air and naval forces as well as intelligence and S4 units. Troops will only be partially mobile and no live fire will be used.


The objective of the exercise is to synchronize the decision making process between the various military bodies in the midst of a crisis situation.


The maneuver will further pressure the decision makers by complicating the combat scenarios with

various possible political developments as well as the opening of a new front in southern Israel.


In May the army held a large exercise opposite various political and State officials to better coordinate wartime cooperation.
