Besides, Israel always appears more than ready for confrontation with Lebanon (on the pretext of war with Hezbollah).
Presently, Israel is imparting training to both: conscripts and reserves, intensively.
As per hypothetical scenario, both in Lebanon and in Gaza, Israeli infantry soldiers likely to find themselves fighting in open and in built-up areas.
Therefore, Israeli military prepare them for this purpose.
Ground Forces Command opened an advanced training center – the “training arena” – three months ago.
One-week training session
These days, infantry units arrive for a one-week training session in the compound, located in central Israel.
Unlike exercise compounds such as the National Ground Forces Training Center (Mali) in Tze’elim, and other facilities where units train together – divisions, brigades, battalions, and companies – they dedicated this new center to individual training of each combat soldier.
In the compound – dubbed the “warfare gym” – soldiers focus on four main issues: urban warfare, short-range shooting ranges, first aid, and krav maga (close-up personal combat).
Meanwhile, their training day starts at 9 a.m. and runs till 8 o’clock.
Moreover, Israeli military set up the compound and currently Elbit Systems is operating this.
Besides, personal trainers – former elite units combat warriors – follow each soldier throughout the day, and at the end, they review with them what needs improving.
The different sections of the compound allow the soldiers to feel as though they stay in a real combat zone, with their senses stimulated for heightened awareness and realism.
