The Indian Army has been closely monitoring the ongoing conflicts between Israel-Hamas to train its soldiers to handle similar situations on the India-Pakistan border, a top Army official said on Tuesday.

Lt Gen Manjinder Singh, the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief of the Army Training Command (ARTRAC), said, “We are also closely watching the Russia-Ukraine war for three years to know how the drones and new technologies are impacting the war.”

Addressing reporters, Lt Gen Singh said, “War is a dynamic and evolving process and what wins you the last war may not be very good to win the next war and when economy evolves, threats also evolve. It is for the military commanders to be aware about it.”

He explained that the army needs to “understand and study these scenarios so that it is prepared if it has to undergo a similar situation tomorrow” on the India-Pakistan border.

“The Israel-Hamas war is a ‘classic case where we may also be impacted by similar situations on our borders with Pakistan or another country with terrorist attacks’, so military training has to be relevant,” Lt Gen Singh said.

The ARTRAC chief stated that the training content imparted to soldiers and the field army is being updated accordingly “to prepare them for such contingencies.”

Over the years, the Indian Army has become 90% self-reliant in meeting its equipment requirements and has also exported defense equipment worth Rs 35,000 crore, Lt Gen Singh added.
