For battalion 202 of the IDF paratroopers brigade, three months of grueling training exercises began last Wednesday night with a bang.

The battalion’s first of 13 weeks of training exercises focused on urban warfare, and the soldiers put their skills into action by conquering a simulation Arab village, located outside the Tseilim army base.
