’Israeli’ New Drills: Units Simulate Hizbullah Warfare
Out of fear from Hizbullah, the “Israeli” army has recently upgraded its enemy simulation process during combat training.
According to information, the Nahal infantry brigade ordered some of its soldiers to plan and simulate a battle against the “Israeli” army while acting as a Hizbullah combat company.
As part of the Nahal’s training, which has been taking place over the pas several months, some of the brigade’s companies were converted to replicate those of the Resistance group, with the rest of the forces fighting against them.
The Nahal’s “Hizbullah Companies” wear camouflage uniforms, use weapons that were actually captured from Hizbullah such as AK-47 rifles and RPG launchers, and employ Hizbullah tactics, such as placing bombs on the “Israeli” army’s expected path.
In addition, these companies have been provided command and control centers modeled on intelligence information relating to the originals, which would be used by Hizbullah in case of a third armed conflict in Lebanon.
The so-called “Hizbullah Companies” operated in the village of Samia in the Occupied Galilee, with regular Nahal troops being assigned the task of taking and clearing their positions, following a 30 kilometer march.
“Enemy simulation is a profession for us, and we check the commanders and fighters in enemy simulations as a legitimate way of gauging how they would act in the face of the “Israeli” army if they were Hizbullah’s people?,” a senior Nahal officer said.
“This all happens in a Galilee village, with barking dogs, surrounded by building structures in town outskirts with large vegetation. [It smells like] the scents of the village. Construction is low, there are fences around houses, and we even simulate the same way of parking on the sides of narrow streets. It’s the closest we can get to the expected reality in Southern Lebanon.”
