Israeli army conducts a sudden reservist exercises

Israeli army conducts a sudden reservist exercises Hundreds of reservists were mobilized on April 29 during the sudden exercises of the Israel Defense Forces, which began along the border with Syria and Lebanon.


The exercise, which began on Monday, will last until the end of the week. The command emphasizes that the training activities are in no way connected with the changing situation in the region.

Speaking on the radio station "Gali TSAHAL", General Mordechai said that the exercises check the mobilization of the division and are designed to track the entire procedure for calling reservists in case of urgent need - from home to the military base.

Nevertheless, the exercises take place against the backdrop of fighting between the militants and the Syrian army in the immediate vicinity of the border with Israel. Also last week, the Israeli Air Force shot down a drone that invaded Lebanese airspace in the country, which gave journalists and politicians a reason to talk about the threat of war with Iran.

"The Israel Defense Forces launched surprise exercises ..., using a division in them, including mobilizing hundreds of reservists," said the press service of the Israel Defense Forces, adding that the troops will have to work out a "sudden escalation" scenario in the north.

Note, the exercises are held against the backdrop of the ongoing fighting in Syria, the invasion of Lebanon unmanned aerial vehicle, which was shot down last week by the Israeli Air Force, the arguments of politicians and journalists about the threat of conflict with Iran and its allies, as well as the need for a military operation in Syria to ensure chemical preservation weapons.

Local media claim that the agenda was received by two thousand reservists. The Times of Israel newspaper estimates the total number of troops involved in the exercise in 10-20 thousand people. "These are the first exercises of such magnitude in a few years," the Jerusalem Post writes, in turn.

According to the "Debka" version, sudden exercises will increase military tensions on the Israeli, Jordanian, Syrian and Lebanese borders. Tehran, Damascus, and Hezbollah headquarters have suggested that Israel is working out options before US military intervention in Syria. The exercises also relate to the speech that Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah will give on Tuesday night, if Israel attacks, Hezbollah will be on the side of Syria.

Washington sources report that President Barack Obama is discussing decisions about whether to start military operations against Syrian military targets, including Bashar al-Assad chemical weapons. Offer three main options:

1. Aerial bombardment of Syrian military bases and infrastructures, which are a stronghold, and help to keep Bashar Assad in power;

2. A missile strike against the deployment of chemical weapons from the sea and from bases based in Europe and the Middle East;

3. Deploying 20,000 US troops at the Jordanian-Syrian border.

Also, Obama can combine elements of all three options and hold them simultaneously.

Unexpected Israeli military exercises and the concentration of reservists along the borders of Syria and Lebanon. Israel is checking ground, air and naval units for readiness in a potential US military operation against Syria.

      The flag and the carrying of democracy, and the Nazis "cleansed" in their opinion of the lower races. Ideologies are different, but the goals are the same.
      The urks in Mordor started stirring up, the darkness was drowning over Damascus, Vladimir Vladimirovich was our move? Maybe it turns out that our Black Sea Fleet commander forgot his cigarette case in the Syrian port of Tartus, you have to pick it up, but send one ship is not interesting, you need to send a squadron with the sea for the company infantry on board !!!

        For more persuasiveness, here are a few links. With a simple systematization, Russia's policy in Syria is perfectly manifested

          The right train of thought is Valery.
          You guys should have understood a simple truth a long time ago. Previously, our homeland of the USSR showed everyone its muscles, as a result, the enemy spotted weak points and delivered blows, thank God not fatal, but the country was in clinical death. But pumped out, we will not list at what price. Now, when we have tasted that blow, we in the person of the supreme commander in chief act differently. And it is right. Now we are pretending to be weak and quietly doing in the gym, building muscle. And the enemy relaxed and kisses the cups with the thought of complete victory and permissiveness. Let's remember the 90s, how many were? Now life is much better !!!!! In some respects, it’s even better than in the USSR. As fast as we, from crash to dawn, no one has yet recovered. Yes, a lot of problems, but there are shifts. The car does not accelerate to 100 km / h in a second.

        Israel will not climb into Syria. We don’t need this, why? A maximum of special forces dehydrates another group if chemical weapons begin to spread, or if they are bombed from the air, which is simpler. If Israel fits, it will only be in Assad’s hands, he will immediately appear in the Arab world as a victim of Israeli aggression, and this is like a red rag for Arabs, now his brothers are ruining us with changes with the support of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar. We do not need him, like Syria. Only in the event of the transfer of modern weapons systems to Hezbollah or the threat of the USP being pulled away, Israel will take active action without penetration of infantry units of the seizure of territory. I think if America and Turkey fit in, and parts of the type under the control Lag Israel will certainly provide logistics, intelligence. But nothing more

          What is the difference between the direction of weapons and target designation from its direct use ???
          What I mean: Guys, you are unsurpassed masters of "raking in the heat with someone else's hands", but at the same time, at first glance, you remain clean ...
          Here are just an alibi sewn with white threads from beginning to end. And the threat of chemical weapons and assistance to "peaceful rebels" and the attack on the scientific center, where the transfer / capture of weapons of mass destruction and the attack on the convoy, etc. was supposed to take place.
          Continue further? You have been in this conflict up to your ears for a long time and if an attack occurs, then a few high-precision strikes can be easily attributed to "preventing" something there ... right?

          A pretty one will not work for you ... This is, for example, as if I hear that your apartment is being robbed and I send my bodyguard to hit you in the head, he is a pro, he will not kill at all, only turn it off, but let the apartment be robbed and put his wife in principle can also be allowed, there is an appropriate fatwa. But in general, of course, I don't climb ...

            I repeat 100t.raz. Assad is our neighbor, but he is our enemy (like his late dad). Therefore, your analogy is not worth it. The analogy is more correct, the neighbor is a goat, and now he is spread rot by his friends just like him. And the worse this neighbor is, the calmer it will be for me.
            The harsh truth of life. If only Assad would last longer (although the end is clear). The longer they feel bad, and so on ............ good

          Saudi Qatar and others from the Arab world have long been divided, and are under the control of the United States. What they say, they will do so. For these purposes, and in the Qur'an they will find a sura that permits the destruction of their co-religionists. What is happening with success in Syria, as in Libya. After all, Muslims fight with Muslims there, with incitement from the United States, the EU, and other slime-eating. So your excuse is not wealthy.

          What aggression is beneficial for Turks and Arabs and Israel for the fall of Assad, so that no one will switch to anyone. Because, as sponsors say, it will be so, and the militants don’t care who the Assad will be removed there.

                  It's pretty funny to follow the reaction of the Israeli security forces to the Arab spring. From sharply negative, almost hysterical in the beginning to sharply approving today. It seems that everything was agreed with Qatar and the Saudis. Without Israel, Iran would not be the last to squeeze. It looks like the political part of the deal is being overlooked. Israel helps calm down Iran; Arabians help calm down palaces. Qatar takes control of Gaza, and Israel in November greatly contributed to this by destroying Hamas' infrastructure and economy and kicked Hamas under Emir. Mursi actually acts in relation to Hamas even tougher than Mubarak. The tunnels are being drowned and the machine guns in Rafiah are barely uncovered. Unsurprisingly, the Mursi are Muslim brothers. And the Muslim Brotherhood is the creature of Qatar.

                  Not everything is so simple if Iran were not able to create nuclear weapons, although now it is a reason for invasion and at the moment they have suspended this program. So depriving the allies, it simply compels us to start intensively developing again, and nuclear weapons for Iran add a couple of compelling arguments to it, allowing us to dictate our rules not only to the Arab League, but also to Israel. And it’s similar to death, but Iran will not use it as a spear, rather a shield, because the Ayatol regime, although it likes to say red words, but everyone wants to live and will not be mutually destroyed. Yes, Iraq can radically turn to Iran in connection with the Kurdish problem. And Iraq, although a weakened army, is a major player who should not be discounted. In short, as long as there is Iran, the political game will not stop.

    Washington sources report that President Barack Obama is discussing decisions about whether to start military operations against Syrian military targets, including Bashar al-Assad chemical weapons. Offer three main options:


    Yeah.
    Everything goes according to the US scenario.

    Earlier.

    Moscow insists on satisfying a specific request by the Syrian authorities to investigate allegations of the use of chemical weapons in March near Aleppo, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.


    “We insist on meeting the specific request of the Syrian government,” he told reporters on Thursday in Budapest, RIA Novosti reports.

    According to the Russian Foreign Minister, in March, chemical weapons or chemicals were used near Aleppo, as the Syrian government reported to the UN, asking them to investigate this particular case. Lavrov said that the UN Secretary General agreed to conduct such an investigation, but a few days later the UN requested access to all Syrian facilities.





    “This is wrong and very reminiscent of those resolutions that were adopted by the UN Security Council on Iraq,” Lavrov said.


    April 30, US President Barack Obama said that the US has accurate information about the use of chemical weapons in Syria, but it is not known who used them.

    US authorities have previously made it clear that they can use military force in response to the use of Syrian authorities chemical weapons.

    People you spit on 3.14duns from the media. Just the same, they did not call for several years unexpectedly. And last year in the Central Organ, two tank divisions of the reservists were deployed. And two years ago, all the engineering units of the reservists. And also without prior notice. The current NHS Ganza is generally a chip.

    According to "Debka",

    Well, who is citing Debka? fool Cite the grandmother right away. bully

    Hundreds of reservists were mobilized on April 29 during the sudden exercises of the Israel Defense Forces, which began along the border with Syria and Lebanon.

    Local media claim that 10 reservists received the summons. The Times of Israel estimates the total number of military personnel participating in the exercise at 20-XNUMX.

    This is how 10-20 thousand of hundreds have already become. Does the author even imagine what an emergency mobilization of 20 thousand reservists in a country with a population of 8 million people is?

    The Times of Israel estimates the total number of military personnel participating in the exercise at 10-20.

    Bullshit. Here is the original article:
    IDF 'Lebanon war' drill caught defense minister by surprise
    The IDF called up a full division and some 2,000 reserve soldiers to the northern part of the country for a drill simulating the mobilization of a large number of troops in a short period. The author made a mistake, it happens. laughing

    Israel Defense Forces (Tsahal) - The army of the State of Israel and its main security body - the IDF was founded two weeks after the founding of the state, during the War of Independence on May 26, 1948, David Ben-Gurion signed the "Decree on the Israel Defense Forces"

    The method of using the army - the doctrine of action - was developed in 1949 by a committee chaired by Colonel Chaim Laskov:
    Israel is inferior to its neighbors in the population and in the foreseeable future will always be forced to wage war against a numerically superior enemy.
    The argument with the neighbors does not consist in disagreement over the borders, but in rejection of the very fact of the existence of Israel. Opponents of Israel will wage war against him to destroy.
    Given the geographical realities, as well as the superiority of the enemy in manpower and technology, Israel in the event of war cannot count on victory by destroying the enemy. The real goal should be to cause such damage to his armed forces, which would incapacitate them for as long as possible.
    The small territory, very rugged borders and the proximity of the populated centers to the front line deprives Israel of any strategic depth. In the narrowest zone, the distance from the border to the sea is only 14 km. There are no natural barriers to defense.
    Israel cannot wage a long war. The war makes it necessary to mobilize such a huge percentage of the population that in a few weeks the economy will simply cease to function.
    According to the law, all citizens of Israel, including those with dual citizenship and living in another country, as well as all permanently residing in the territory of the state, upon reaching the age of 18 are liable to call up for service in the IDF. The term of urgent service is 36 months, for women - 24 months. The law applies to Jews and (non-Jews citizens of the state), to the Druze and Circassians. Bedouins, Christians and Muslims can volunteer in the army
    After the end of the regular service, all ordinary officers and officers are called up annually for reservist fees for up to 45 days.
    Active reservist service - continues until the reservist reaches the age of 45 years.

    Military budget: $ 15.8 billion
    The total number of regular armed forces: 176,5 thousand people.
    Reserve: 565 thousand people, including the SV - 380 thousand, the Air Force - 24,5 thousand, the Navy - 3,5 thousand

    What was the difference between Hitler's invasion and Obama's invasions ??? can someone enlighten me dark?

    I dare to put forward my assumption, I think there are practically no differences! Both of them practice blitzkrieg, both, unlike other countries, are ready for war and they have one mistake for everyone: they do not threaten to own the whole world! There will always be someone who tells them NO!

    Israel will not climb into Syria. We don’t need this, why? A maximum of special forces dehydrates another group if chemical weapons begin to spread, or if they are bombed from the air, which is simpler. If Israel fits, it will only be in Assad’s hands, he will immediately appear in the Arab world as a victim of Israeli aggression, and this is like a red rag for Arabs, now his brothers are ruining us with changes with the support of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar. We do not need him, like Syria. Only in the event of the transfer of modern weapons systems to Hezbollah or the threat of the USP being pulled away, Israel will take active action without penetration of infantry units of the seizure of territory. I think if America and Turkey fit in, and parts of the type under the control Lag Israel will certainly provide logistics, intelligence. But nothing more

    Again pompous comments people.ek with Israeli flags - bomb, crush, Syria is not an opponent, etc. But where will you be if the United States abandons you or is destroyed, which is likely given the increasing power of Russia, China and other allies? A territorial misunderstanding called Israel will cease to exist and how many peoples of the world will breathe calmly. How much innocent blood will stop flowing! Good luck and victory to Assad and the people of Syria!

        It is especially ridiculous to say that the Arabs will destroy Israel tomorrow, given that today the Arab countries of the Gulf are moving step by step towards an unprecedented rapprochement with Israel, knowing full well that Israel is their best partner and most powerful ally in the region, which, if The United States will sail off to the distant shores (redeploy forces to the Far East) the only force that can protect them. At the same time, the Palestinians themselves are completely in awe of how the Arab League conducts trade with respect to Palestine. The latest operation "cloud pillar" is the clearing of the field near Qatar, which expands official cooperation with Israel (under the carpet, I think contacts are a thousand times more intense). The AEO has already requested permission from Israel to import defense technology several years ago. Then they were refused. These days, the CA is considering the issue of establishing trade relations with Israel. Bahrain - Trial balloon as always with CA approval. Hezbollah was included in the list of terrorist organizations there. First of all, the Arabian states are interested in importing defense and agricultural technologies from Israel. Israel is turning into a gas giant, and the Arabians must also take this fact into account and agree with Israel on a coordinated energy policy for the entire region. Syria will be hammered one way or another, and Israel's interest is quite obvious. Before starting to fuck Iran, Hezbollah must be pacified. It is better for Israel if this is done not by the IDF soldiers, but by the Salafis, who could solve the Hezbollah problem with their inherent level of barbarism, that is, cut it out entirely. IHMO in the next ten years, the Arab-Israeli conflict will come to naught. Thugs who hate Israel fiercely will not go anywhere, but at the state level Israel will turn from the main enemy of the Arabs into their main support. At least all the signs of this are already visible. Israel has long been ready for such cooperation. Now this readiness is clearly indicated by the Arabian monarchies. And it's great that Tzipi Livni, a creature of the Mossad, who has long-standing and strong ties with the security forces of Egypt and the states of the Arabian Peninsula, has been appointed to oversee this course of rapprochement.

            The United States is no longer able to restrain China alone in all directions. Therefore, in addition to the obvious internal interests that prompt the Gulf countries to cooperate with Israel, there is a powerful external factor. America needs a powerful ally in the BV in order to stop the expansion of the dragon in the BV and in northern Africa. Arabs cannot resist Chinese expansion because of their military weakness, and Israel cannot hold back because they are boycotting (boycotting) neighbors. Now when fin and polit interests take precedence over stupidity and senseless enmity, everything changes. Israel is already de facto the most powerful logistics hub serving the Arabs. (See news on Turkish transit to Jordan and the SA) Only in a couple and only together Aravice + Israel can give the region an economic impetus and block the Chinese in the North African direction. The fact that Israel in the next few years expects an unprecedented economic boom and an unprecedented rapprochement with the Arabs, I am sure. It is more interesting how the Arabians can help calm the Palestinians. After all, such money had previously been invested in hate propaganda that a whole generation of terror accomplices had grown. But it is rather a long process. The inertia of the propaganda machine is enormous. From the news that comes with BV these days, you understand what epoch-making changes await Israel and the entire region.

    What self-confidence, yes, of course - the United States, nuclear weapons, the Holocaust, finally, if the first two arguments have not been rolled out, I can’t argue with weighty arguments, but sooner or later everything ends just like the power and hegemony of some states, history repeats itself (the great Roman Empire, for example ), it will be repeated in your case, a mouse, note that you are turning to you (you also poke an unfamiliar stranger). Helping Assad’s opponents and provoking this conflict, you just opened this Pandora’s box, you yourself launched a time bomb on which you sit, well .. your end is near, I think inhalers will not help you either. More discussion with people like you do not see the point. One thing is not clear why moderators allow a dismissive, boorish, arrogant attitude towards our country, the countries of our allies?

      Do not give an example of Rome, far and boring. Put Russia as an example, otherwise the continuous screams of the USA will collapse, Europe will fall apart, people will go to the porch.
      So far, only one fact (unfortunately) For the 20th century, more precisely for 65 years) only the Russian Empire and the USSR fell apart twice.

      We haven’t won anything about the Arab spring, and we’ll just rub it from Assad’s fall, but that doesn’t mean at all that we should love and help him. Let him deal with his shit, but we don’t ask him to help with his scumbags to understand (though it’s worth recalling that this cute neighbor sponsored all the terror against us and attacked the Nax 5 times) Therefore, I say that Assad shouldn’t dying, let him live long and tormented, let them wet each other for a long time and let Assad remain the last survivor in Syria - it suits me

    Only preparations for the war waged by nationalist authorities will not solve the security problems of Israel; recognition of Palestine and the pursuit of a peaceful policy by Yitzhak Rabin, who was killed in a conspiracy, are necessary.
