IDF trains for Hamas commando infiltration
The massive, five-day drill was held in southern communities to train for the possibility of Hamas commando infiltration attempts from land, air and sea during the next round of fighting.
The Gaza Division and the Southern Command held their largest annual training operation in which hundreds of soldiers, including reservists, participated in a five-day training exercise in which IDF forces simulated a massive infiltration of southern communities by the Hamas commando units.

 

 

IDF forces rehearsed scenarios in which large numbers of Hamas commandos managed to infiltrate Israeli communities by parachute, subterranean attack tunnels and the sea.

As part of the exercises, the forces also practiced operations while absorbing incessant rocket and mortar attacks from the Gaza Strip, which the IDF expects will happen during the course of the next war with Hamas. Border communities and cities such as Sderot and Ashkelon are expected to take the brunt of such attacks.
