Israeli and Cypriot armies end joint exercise in Troodos Mts.

The IDF and Cypriot armed forces Thursday ended a joint exercise of their special operations units and air forces in the rugged terrain of the Troodos Mountains. They practiced their combat and preparedness capabilities. DEBKAfile’s military sources add that it was the second joint Israeli-Cypriot drill this year and it was held in a mountainous environment covered in snow most of the year. This landscape approximates potential arenas of combat for the IDF in Lebanon and Syria.

    Good idea to crush to pulp Hezbollah, but IDF’s boys life is precious. Why not just bomb?

    The Gd of Abraham Isaac and Jacob fought for His people when their prophets (Samuel) and Kings (Jehoshaphat) trusted Him. I heave heard of similar miraculous occasions of divine help in confrontations with Israels attackers in present day and age. I know one thing, the Gd of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. Let Him do His crushing His way. Psalms 27

    Joshua, King David as well as others fought for Isreal. Preparedness is always a good idea. If you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready.

    Just bombing {Napalm, cluster bombs, chemical weapons} would be an option, but it gives very negative press of “unjust” war, many civilians killed and the like, so it is good for IDF to practice in the mountains to fight against military and terrorist positions.
    The IDF know much better than we all what to do, as they are very well trained and have one of the best intelligence services in the world.
