The IDF has begun clearing some 700 land mines from the Jordan Valley border region this week.

The mines, some 40 years old, will be neutralized through controlled explosions by IDF Engineering Corps bomb squad officers in the advanced phases of their training.

“This comes as part of a wider trend to reduce the number of mine fields,” said Lt.-Col. Roee Zilberberg, the Engineering Corps officer of Battalion 162, which is responsible for the Jordan Valley.
