Sources at the General Staff of the IDF revealed today (Monday) that at the heart of the investigations into the conduct of the army on October 7, alongside the Chief of Staff, the Defense Ministry, the Air Force, the Navy and other factors - the land arm will stand prominently. The commander of the branch, Major General Tamir Yedai, appointed a team to draw lessons from the ground maneuver in the Gaza Strip - but has not yet begun to investigate the processes that preceded the war, and its functioning on October 7.



Another area that arouses criticism in the IDF General Headquarters is the readiness of the ground forces for activity along the tunnel route The undergrounds in Gaza and Balanon.

"We experienced the world of defensive and offensive tunnels in the summer of 2014, in Operation Strong Cliff, and we had to invent something out of nothing while fighting. In Operation Northern Shield, we saw how Hezbollah prepares for the underground world and organized itself in fortified formations in villages in southern Lebanon. Amn pointed to maintenance in the field of tunnels." A security official who specializes in the field of engineering. "In the land arm they did not know how to adapt the structure of the brigade and the battalion to the threats in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip as part of a war scenario that would include maneuvering.

As if they didn't actually believe we were being manipulated."



The source added that in practice "the entire engineering burden for handling the tunnels is placed on special units at the edge of the operational edge thanks to flexibility and technological ability, and then and above all on the Yalam unit."

He explained: "The great pressure is placed on Yehalam, which has limited personnel and is under load in everything related to handling the tunnels.

This is why destroying tunnels in the Gaza Strip takes a long time."

An IDF officer who specializes in maneuvering, commented on the gaps that were discovered in the ground operation in the Gaza Strip.

If they had preserved the accumulated knowledge since the cliff in all the battalions, the pace of destroying the tunnel and understanding how to identify, how to monitor and map and how to destroy would have been much faster.

They all depend on the Israel Defense Forces and in some cases on the engineering battalions, so the work is complex and slow."



"The ground arm cannot ignore the manner in which base exercises were carried out on October 7. The manner in which we defended the border line, including combat techniques, and the method of operation and defense of the outposts," claimed a senior IDF officer. "The basics, the base, must be perfected every The land arm time.

The systemic investigation team that examined the operational and systemic concept for the protection of Shalom's borders was completed and was supposed to be presented in October.

The play was postponed due to the war."
