Wednesday, 7 April 2021 | Israel Defense Forces [IDF] GOC Northern Command Maj. Gen. Amir Baram ordered a snap war-readiness drill on Monday for Golani Brigade troops deployed along the northern border.

Maneuvers included airborne-combat scenarios, among them “removing” Hezbollah forces that “infiltrated” the Mount Hermon sector.

One of the extreme-case scenarios that the IDF is preparing to counter in the event of an armed conflict with the Lebanon-based terrorist group, which is Iran’s largest proxy in the area, is a Hezbollah incursion into Israeli territory.
