For the first time since Hannah Szenes parachuted on European soil, Israeli parachutists jumped in Poland. It was part of a large-scale exercise currently being conducted by NATO in Poland, Germany, Lithuania and Latvia under the name Swift Response. The IDF paratroopers are participating in joint training with the 173rd Brigade of the European Command of the US Army.

 

According to the US Army Europe Public Affairs, Swift Response is the largest combined airborne training on the continent since the end of the Cold War. It’s designed to integrate multiple Allied nations’ high-readiness forces to operate as a cohesive team and demonstrate the Alliance’s capacity to rapidly deploy and operate in support of maintaining a strong and secure Europe.
