The Desert Reconnaissance Battalion Conducts Drill in the Urban Warfare Center

April 2, 2012

 

Last week, the Desert Reconnaissance Battalion conducted a drill in the Urban Warfare Training Center, simulating fighting in populated cities. The drill was conducted to assure maximum efficiency while fighting in urban centers by focusing solely on hostile targets.

 

The Desert Reconnaissance Battalion, also known as "the natural detectives" is comprised almost entirely of Bedouins whom, though exempt from service, volunteered to serve in the IDF. These soldiers use their unique abilities to track down infiltrators and other threats in the vast Israeli desert.
