Nahal soldiers march 70 km. through mountainous territory, before
going to Judea and Samaria.
The Nahal Brigade marked its 30th birthday this week, and celebrated
with a large scale drill that included 70 to 80 kilometers of
marching through mountainous territory. The demanding exercise took
place in the Golan Heights, the northern Jordan Valley (Bik´a) and
Brigade Commander Col. Yehuda Fuchs said that the brigade´s
battalions had all held "war weeks" in the past few weeks, before the
brigade level drill. The training was challenging on the physical,
professional and mental levels, he said, and included nighttime live
fire drills, tanks, artillery and cooperation with the IAF.
The Nahal Brigade recently completed a tour of duty in Gaza for which
it received high commendations, and is now entering Judea and Samaria.
