U.S. Marines train in urban-warfare tactics and practices with the Israel Defense Forces.

(JNS) The Israel Defense Forces and U.S. Marine Corps completed a two-week exercise in Israel that included joint urban-warfare training, the IDF announced on Saturday.

In the past two weeks, the forces learned “various methods with an emphasis on open and urban field combat at the ground forces training bases,” said the IDF in a statement.

“In addition to the exercise, annual discussions between the IDF and Marines were conducted, led by infantry officer and chief IDF paratrooper Brig. Gen. Guy Levy, establishing the 2022 joint training framework,” it added.

Marines have arrived on Israeli soil for drills in the past, including in 2018, when they met with the IDF’s Egoz commando unit to gain information about its combat experiences in the Middle East.

In 2016, IDF special forces and U.S. Marines held joint training in Israel’s Negev Desert as part of an exercise dubbed “Noble Shirley.” The forces practiced counter-terrorism tactics, including landing helicopters in combat zones, urban combat and storming positions.

In 2013, IDF Givati Brigade forces exchanged information on urban warfare with the Marines—and were briefed on their experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq—during a joint training program in Israel.

The Marines are in the middle of a ten day training session with Israeli military forces. This is not the first time that these two groups have trained together, but this mission will be their most challenging yet. Also you can get essay geeks review to learrn more new things related to the study. The Marines are learning skills like how to use hand grenades and other explosives while also being taught about urban warfare tactics.
