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.
