BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 A.M.) – The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have concluded their large-scale military drill along the Lebanese border this week, the Jerusalem Post reported last night.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the drill was led by the 450th Battalion of the IDF’s School for Infantry Corps Professions & Squad Commanders, which is also known as the Bislamach Brigade.

The military drill concentrated on a simulated military conflict with Hezbollah in the Upper Galilee region near the Lebanese-Israeli border.

This drill comes just weeks after the Israeli Defense Forces declared the conclusion of their “Operation Northern Shield”, which focused on the alleged Hezbollah tunnels along the border.

The Bislamach Brigade is the unit where Israeli troops are sent to be trained as squad commanders and platoon sergeants.

“This course is the first one that they do as they go from [being a] soldier to officer. This course makes them an officer who has responsibility over some 12 soldiers,” Lt.-Col. Liran Bitton of 450th Battalion told reporters.

“They understand themselves better, the purpose of their service and their responsibilities. It’s amazing to see the change,” he continued.

“The next war will be different than it was in the past,” Bitton said in an interview with the Jerusalem Post. “The enemy has gotten better and has more advanced weapons and more experience. Both sides have advanced, and we know our enemy. But, at the same time, I am sure they know us, too.”
