|Israeli soldiers during excercise|
(Scroll down for video) For those of you who love to see the Israel Defense Forces in action, there is video showing one thousand troops jumping out of an airplane during a military exercise.
The Paratroopers division of the IDF held a special training session with a goal of gaining experience in jumping from airplanes during war. Part of the exercise called for the soldiers to parachute at night. About one thousand soldiers participated in the jump. The soldiers jumped from a military jet to attack an imaginary enemy inside their own territory.
"The exercise is aimed to mimic a war deep inside enemy territory," brigade commander Colonel Deputy Eliezer Toledano told the soldiers before the start of the exercise. "The Israel Defense Forces believes that exercise is the best practice to ensure good performance," the commander said. He also said that the military needs an effective Paratroopers division and it is impossible for the army to survive without one.
"All eyes are looking at us now, not only in Israel, but around the world. Our enemies will know that we can at any moment send in an army of one thousand troops anywhere we want,” the commander also said.
