Israeli army has recently carried out a large-scale drill to test response time of its forces to a potential attack by Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.

The Jerusalem Post reported on Sunday that the two-week drill was held by the Menahse territorial brigade, which covers the Palestinian cities of Jenin and Tulkarm.

According to Lieutenant Colonel Kfir Edri, deputy commander of the brigade, exercise lasted two full weeks, using both conscripts and reserve forces. 

The drills focused on dealing with large-scale unrest and the consequences of a possible collapse of security coordination with the Palestinian Authority.

The drill also centered around fighting a possible attack on the Zionist settlements.
