Israel’s army will begin a massive exercise Tuesday simulating conflict with Hezbollah near Lebanon’s southern border, military sources said, in what would be the largest drill in nearly two decades.

 

The drill will last 10 days and simulate “scenarios we’ll be facing in the next confrontation with Hezbollah,” an Israeli military source told AFP Monday. Israeli military sources said tens of thousands of soldiers, including thousands of reserves, would take part. Aircraft, boats and submarines would be deployed and the army’s canine unit would also participate, they said.
