The Golani Brigade’s 12-member delegation, made up of highly trained fighters and commanders, left for Morocco on Sunday to participate in this cooperative training opportunity.
Over the next two weeks, Golani Brigade soldiers will focus on a series of diverse combat challenges. These challenges will include urban warfare tactics, honing their skills in asymmetric warfare and specialized underground covert operations.
The training will culminate in a joint exercise involving all participating forces, where they will enhance their group training experiences.
The primary objective of the “African Lion” exercise is to foster strong bonds among participating countries and to promote mutual learning between foreign militaries. By engaging in the multinational platform, the IDF aims to strengthen international relations and enhance cooperation in the field of defense and security.
