The German Defence Ministry announced on Sunday that 100 of its soldiers are going to receive training from the Israeli army.

A spokesman for the ministry said that the exercises will last three weeks and come within the framework of Germany-Israel military cooperation.

According to Welt am Sonntag newspaper, the German troops will develop their urban warfare tactics at a special training centre in Israel. This will include fighting against terrorists sheltering behind civilians in populated areas and fighting an enemy which uses tunnels in combat.
