  • Description

    Israeli paratroopers began a three day exercise in the Negev desert in the South of the Country on Tuesday (15 Sept). The exercise marks "paratrooper day" which takes place on Thursday (17 Sept) and commemorates the role of Israeli paratroops in the defence of the country.

    The paratroopers are more often taken into battle by helicopters rather than jumping from aircraft and the manoeuvres help maintain Israeli military alert during the Middle-East ceasefire.

    During the six-day war in 1967 Israeli paratroopers played a major role in the fighting on all fronts. In the last three years role in the fighting on all fronts. In the last three years they have taken part in the raids deep into Arab territory.
