An elite Nahal infantry brigade company held an exercise in recent days in which soldiers practiced engaging and destroying enemy rocket launchers.

The Golan Heights drill saw the unit simulate close combat together with tanks, infantry and artillery forces, Maj. L. (name withheld), commander of the Engineering and Sabotage Company in the Nahal Brigade’s Reconnaissance Battalion, told The Jerusalem Post.

“Although we carry out daily border-security missions, we are maintaining our readiness for war,” the officer said on Thursday.

Destroying rocket launchers is “something we are prepared to do all year long. We understand that this is a central threat in any arena, north or south,” he added.
