|Zionist military outlets reported on Sunday that Gaza unit of the occupation army has started a new large-scale military drill in the Asqalan area and its environs simulating the war on Gaza Strip in Occupied Palestine.|
The5-day joint drill between US and Zionist armies will also simulate different scenarios, including the tunnels threat, attacks against Zionist front, and implementation of the lessons learned from previous exercises, such as the limitations appeared during confrontation with the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) takfiri group in Egypt’s Sinai.
Zionist army spokesman said in a statement that the maneuver was planned in advance and is part of the annual training program for 2016.
It will take place in the industrial area of Asqalan, which implies active military aviation in the place due carrying out raids in the southern region, he added.
According to Walah website, the forces involved in the maneuver will navigate in an area similar to Gaza Strip, and will work to collect real time information and how to counter the threat of tunnels.
It will also include the plan implemented by local authorities in the settlements adjacent to the fence, and how military forces take decisions on the evacuation of settlements from the front line.
