WATCH: IDF’s New Commando Brigade Holds Its First Combat Drill

In recent days, units in the brigade practiced a number of wartime command operations in a range of simulated areas. This was conducted “under the command and management of the brigade’s command level, which began forming just before the drill,” said Brig.-Gen. Uri Gordin, commander of the 98th Division, a reserve-service paratroop division also known as the Fire Formation, to which the Command Brigade belongs.

Gordin said the drill, dubbed “Night of the Bridges,” practiced a series of “operational activities by small elite forces that achieve significant gains against the enemy.”
