IDF ends simultaneous commando division exercise on dual fronts

The IDF reported Saturday night the completion of a commando division exercise against two simultaneous fronts – Hamas in the Gaza Strip and Hizballah in the north. The troops practiced assaults with air force cooperation, including drops of units on spread-out targets under close cover; transition between different types of terrain and combat sectors; and operations in open field and urban environments. The division commander, Col. Koby Heller, summed up the exercise by saying that officers and men had demonstrated a high level of combat competence and were ready to take on any mission assigned them.
