The Israeli occupation army, on Tuesday afternoon, began military training at the Zikim military point, near the Gaza shore north of Beit Lahiya, where Gazans could hear the sound of explosions and the movement of active army forces.

Israeli Channel 7 said that, in the evening, the army will begin another training in the settlements of Ariel and Ma’ale Adumim, and the training will end on Wednesday afternoon.

PNN reports that, according to the army spokesman, training is part of the 2018 plan aimed at “maintaining the readiness of troops in times of emergency.”

Two days ago, Israeli forces started training combatants in a 10 day intensive program that sees soldiers training  under the pretext of readying the soldiers for combat in an imminent “war” against Gaza and Lebanon, at the same time.

The Israeli commando brigade, formed in 2015, has seen several training exercises where soldiers are being prepared to attack under what they call “perceived challenge” or threat.

Working with the air force, the indoctrination training serves as a tool resulting in the army legitimizing the use of military action against “any enemy in any area”.
