On September 13 morning, 3 Israel Defense Forces (IDF) were injured when a Merkava battle tank flipped during military exercises in Golan Heights, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced.

On September 5, the IDF launched its largest drill since 1998, with tens of thousands of troops staging a mock 10-day war against Hezbollah amid the growing influence of Hezbollah in Lebanon as well as Hezbollah and other Iranian-linked Shia militias in Syria.
The exercised was named “Or HaDagan” and included physical actions and maneuvers by foot soldiers, land vehicles, naval vessels, helicopters and jets. The Israeli military’s cyber units were also set to be involved in the exercise simulating the “cyber arena”: engaging in electronic warfare and defending its networks.
The exercise will end on September 14.
