Last week, IDF soldiers simulated hostage situations at two crossings in southern Israel.  The soldiers trained with Israeli security forces to take control of simulated attacks at both crossings. In these types of incidents, “the security forces must alert IDF soldiers and create safe zones for civilians,” explains Lt. Shay Barak, an officer in the IDF’s Southern Gaza Brigade. “We also assemble a SWAT team that can negotiate and take control of the attack if necessary. In the end, we are the ones responsible for handling the incident.”
