Along a quiet border in southern Israel, IDF troops held a large-scale drill preparing for the next round of conflict with terror groups in the Gaza Strip. Several months after Operation Guardian of the Walls, the border between Israel and Gaza is quiet. Troops know, however, that deadly fighting can once again break out between the two sides. “It’s quiet for the moment, but it can all change very quickly,” said Maj. Yair Ben-David, operations officer in the northern brigade of the Gaza division. “But we have our hands on the pulse and are watching the enemy, which is always looking for ways to kill us.”

The two-day brigade-level drill this past week saw hundreds of soldiers and some 50-60 reservists train along the northern sector of the Strip. Troops came from the Paratroopers Brigade, Armored Corps, Military Intelligence, and more. Prior to the start of the drill, Ben-David and his fellow officers set their expectations of the drill that was held by the Gaza Division, and saw multi-dimensional maneuvering and the integration of various new capabilities.
