The Israeli occupation army on Sunday embarked on a round of military maneuvers south of Palestinian territories occupied in 1948.

According to Hebrew-speaking media, the three-day drills come as part of the army’s annual plan for 2018.

Sounds of blasts and unordinary hustle and bustle will rock the area all the way through the drills.

The Israeli army has often claimed that the drills provide a sort of battle lab in which forces can hone a spectrum of skills needed to combat growing threats. The forces are put through increasingly difficult war scenarios each day to test particular skill sets.

Recently, the Israeli army’s Brigade 101 had carried out military maneuvers in the Galilee. Soldiers were made to walk for dozens of kilometers, sleep outdoors, and stay with neither food nor water allegedly so as to boost their endurance capacities.
