Last week, the IDF conducted a General Staff exercise called "Lethal Arrow" with the participation of thousands of soldiers, which simulated fighting scenarios in various arenas - the main one of which is against the terrorist organization Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The exercise, which ended today (Thursday), included dealing with rocket launches, the infiltration of Hezbollah personnel into Israeli territory, as well as attacks from the eastern arena and the Gaza Strip.

A senior operations officer said the exercise focused on the northern arena, with the goal of "improving the IDF's offensive capability."



The exercise, which took place against the backdrop of declining IDF training in the face of the Corona epidemic, included launching thousands of rockets and missiles in one day.

This, while trying to hit Israeli strategic sites and IDF bases. A "deadly arrow" also included dealing with ballistic missile launches against Israel by Iranian envoys in the eastern sector, all along with threats from the Gaza Strip.

As part of the exercise, the fighters, batteries and units of the air defense system under the command of Brigadier General Ran Kochav were also activated, including an arrow, a patriot, an iron dome and a David slingshot, in order to intercept missiles, rockets and aircraft. Shells also included cyber-attacks against the enemy and the use of electronic warfare.



A senior Southern Command officer said the scenarios also included Hezbollah infiltrating and staying in Israeli territory for a day. "The enemy had ground achievements," the senior officer described when asked about the scenarios in the exercise. And reduce it as much as possible.

It is just an exercise, it is not problematic. "He said," In any possible course of action, even if they (Hezbollah - AB) have ground achievements, we will have ground achievements before then. "



The Southern Command official added that targets for attack targets have been significantly shortened, while their scope has risen dramatically.

"This is an X Factor. There were many dozens of attacks before the Nahal Brigade entered the village.

We were able to increase the rate of production of targets within the division and their attack. "

A senior Air Force officer said all squadrons participated and imagined attacks deep in enemy territory and in distant arenas.

"This is a high rate that will lead to significant fire blows on the red side (enemy territory - AB)," he described. "We focused on defending the country's skies, cruise missiles from the northern front and active defense.

From trajectory and statistical to accurate missiles, as well as assistance to ground forces from the widest range we have carried out. ”



He added that a combination of 35-F aircraft was made, which once again demonstrated his exceptional capabilities in gathering intelligence on the job and significant assistance in turning intelligence into targets.

Regarding the attacks east of Israel, the senior Air Force officer said that "in some of the scenarios we pose as a reference threat, we understand that we may respond to certain challenges from the east and are related to the operation of the axis.



He said, "We will not be surprised if we experience firing from the east at different ranges."

The officer also noted that the Air Force Red Squadron staged an enemy with the aim of simulating the downing of aircraft, rescues from the depths of enemy territory, a multi-casualty incident that required evacuation under fire and more.

The exercise included cyber attacks against the enemy.
