Close Encounters with Terror: IDF’s Urban Warfare Training

Urban warfare presents a unique set of challenges and the IDF is always training for the next battle.

“We know that the enemy – Hamas and other terror organizations – understands that the IDF is an ethical army, and therefore they fight from within the civilian population in order to make our work more difficult,” explained Maj. Eyal Dror, Deputy Head of the Gaza CLA’s (Coordination and Liaison Administration) Operations Division. “The enemy wants us to shoot at hospitals and schools, and hurt innocent bystanders, in order to put international pressure on us.”
