Israel Prepares for War with Russia

An IDF officer said the scenario simulated a moment when 'Russia made trouble,' a massive cyber warfare attack, enemy missile strikes and hundreds of Israelis killed


The army conducted an exercise this week which simulated a multi-front war in which Russia intervened to prevent Israel from attacking Syria.

“Throughout the exercise, we examined various implications of the Russian presence” in Syria, a senior Israel Defense Forces officer said. “We practiced everything that could be coordinated with the Russians and also what couldn’t be, how we would operate without harming their interests in the region, and on the flip side, scenarios in which the Russians made trouble” – for instance, by sending a message that Israel was undermining their regional interests.

The exercise involved the entire IDF top brass, as well as the headquarters staff of all the commands that would be involved in a fight against Hezbollah in Lebanon which later spread to other fronts. Nevertheless, it was strictly a command-level exercise, meaning it didn’t involve any troops in the field. The purpose of such exercises is to study various threat scenarios.

The IDF also concluded two other exercises this week – a joint exercise with the United States, known as Juniper Cobra, which focuses on aerial defense, and a Home Front Command exercise that simulated various emergency scenarios. The latter included activating missing warning sirens in certain parts of the country.

“These are large-scale exercises that are part of our preparedness for war,” the senior officer said. “The exercise developed to the point where Israel had more than 100 fatalities, both soldiers and civilians.”

The IDF doesn’t think Hezbollah could capture an Israeli community and hold it for any length of time. But it does think a small Hezbollah force could penetrate an Israeli community for a limited time, thereby creating a victory picture. Consequently, the exercise included a scenario of combat on Israeli soil.

The Juniper Cobra exercise simulated a scenario in which large quantities of missiles were launched at Israel.

“There’s a message here to all the players in the region, and also to guests in the region, that our relationship with the United States is not just strategic, but operative in real time,” the senior officer said.

The Home Front Command exercise simulated rescues from destroyed buildings, evacuating and resettling people from a combat zone and coping with banned weaponry such as chemical and biological agents.

  1. Wajjabe how can you stop their money when they print it? The $4 billion we give them each year, they light cigars with it. Fk.

  2. They are expecting, no calculating hundred(s) of Israelis killed while the world is still waiting for 6 million to turn up … dead.
    Israel is suspiciously immune to terrorist attacks. I haven’t heard mention of one. Unless of course you count the native Palestinian rock throwers terroristas.
    No my ignorarnt Israeli partners. If you are seeking out terrorists check your mirror, the rear view one too … it’s loaded with the bastards. haunting, isn’t it?.

  3. You think too kind of the ones behind the nuke buttons and in possession of biological and chemical WMD’s, they don’t like us serf descendants.

    We have started waking up due to the intrawebz and are now by the month constituting an ever growing threat to the ancient elites.

    Israels and US’s biological weapons include zombie virus and what not, the nukes are just the warm-up cover that enables other viruses to be spread in guise of nuclear chaos.

  4. Israel, a religious based country, is guilty of an almost endless list of human rights and other violations of international law which go unpunished. They are also the biggest hypocrite on the planet for criticizing others, like Iran, for doing what they do every day. Israel treats Palestinians like garbage, possesses illegal nukes but refuses international inspections, refuses to sign the non proliferation Treaty, steals land of others, has one set of rules favoring Jews while all others get the shaft, and even did 9/11/01 to the U.S. It is an obscenity for the U.S. to aid a country which violates every principle of our Constitution. All money to this despicable pariah must be stopped. All aid in any way, shape of form, must stop. New laws must be passed to prosecute the whores in Congress who wink at their gross inhuman misconduct. New members of Congress are even intimidated to take a pledge to support Israel or massive funding is used to push them out at the next election. AIPAC must be forced to register as a foreign agent. Trump is a traitor too for favoring Israel and Jews for many positions. America has degenerated into a world wide hypocritical obscenity and disgrace. All Israel learned from Nazi, Germany is how to copy them.
