Amid drop in violence, IDF’s Judea Brigade drills sudden escalation

The Judea Territorial Brigade completed a series of exercises on Wednesday to test responses to a sudden security escalation.

The brigade’s commander told The Jerusalem Post that the unit is ready for a sudden deterioration, despite the fact that the number of attacks in the area is actually down.

Col. Yair Ben-Ezra, commander of the Judea Brigade, said reservists were called up to the brigade’s headquarters and were joined by field battalions from the Kfir infantry brigade, the local Combat Intelligence Collection battalion, special forces, and the Border Police for the drill, which began on Sunday.
