The second Lebanon war was a turning point in the array.
Criticism criticized, readiness on the formation and functioning of logistics during the war, and then implied many conclusions when the main purpose is not to repeat past mistakes and lessons for the future.

The officer, Brig. Gen. Shuki Ben Anat, who finishes his duties in the coming months, told IDF site on the process before the array since the war, in the law and the changing threats in our environment, and how is it set properly for the next war.

“The situation that prevailed in the array before the second Lebanon war actually began a year and a half after the war”, said Brig. Gen. Ben Anat, then in the reserves was excessive and not necessary, and that it reserves a limited resource isn’t there. The reserves took over, minor jobs won’t help the unit’s operating target, precisely the legislature attributes greater severity came roles in 2008 and said he wasn’t ready to do. “

After the war faced the array and substantive task leaders for recovery, a process that began
As soon as the second Lebanon and continues to this day. “We’ve all seen the results. It is important to understand that war is today the value of reserves Colonel, Masjid to soldier and Commander, “said Ali, adding that” all the reason to distinguish between result and not repeat it. What happened happened. Enterprise human body can make errors when shachochma is not to repeat “. In addition, said Brig. Gen. Ben Anat today the reserves because the people understand that the next operation could happen on their watch, another lesson from the war, hence the emphasis on readiness is in array.

Meanwhile, across many processes reserve since the summer of 2006, some military, some civilian operational processes. Brig. Gen. Ben Anat explained that the IDF has always been able to analyze the question deeply, and draw the necessary conclusions, and immediately entered the operational transformation. From the point of view of quality, training, tmailam, through operational activities, subject to significant logistic transformation (cascade rivers “project” that will end this year). “I find it necessary to say that what matters is the soldier inside the vest, the vest and the soldier, but as both fine is optimal,” quest said the kemmel.

However, the array before extensive civil process which partly won for “the law” in 2008. So, the legislature realized that some of the reasons for the second Lebanon wars results in terms of alignment, incorrect operating shape had and decided to take part in two things. The first is determining the activation form, using reserves, and how you use and the resource in General, and the other is the understanding that is a unique sector of society and should be conducted with another. Open minimum economic dialogue must continue, according to Brig. Gen. Ben Anat, and he would keep what’s left of the people’s Army model. “A decade before the war, the people spoke and raised the issues and opinion in protest, and a large part of their unheard,” said Brig. Gen. Ben Anat.

“The law”, in part, reduce the amount of the reserve army, so they can focus on the operative area. It took the law a burden by cutting a number of marine reserves, according to the IDF never enough withered to fill several days allowing him.
In addition, the shape of the model candidates run when the base is operational employment and training once every three years. However, said Brig. Gen. Ben Anat, the thing I thought about legislature attributes greater severity is the unit cohesion. “Not only determined in several captures of sessions, but at the time, it was a pathetic performance captures more time, ל’שפשוף, Kur
The melting pot and stew together. Cohesion is a weapon, and she eventually shoots.
He said that recently the Deputy Chief of staff to add two days to each reserve unit
In order to engage solely on the criterion of cohesion, Meg.

Six years have passed since the second Lebanon war. Six years produced many lessons about lessons learned, raise the question: If reservists are called to, what will be the image? “Everyone would come and do the job, to be pure and simple,” said Brig. Gen. Ben Anat, reserve officials confident in their ability. What will determine future vision is the fight, and people know what’s going to happen in mshmrtam and perform. Percentage of recruitments are higher because people are encouraged to flag up and abandon everything and think
About all the implications, but what the Mission now and will do whatever it takes, even if compromised cohesion but still enough to fulfill the mission, and membership and combat units to do the job. “

“We need to understand that if we don’t keep this array wouldn’t be who saves him. Today we see reservists their service become unnatural. Two generations ago, had to say in the economic, social and family why not do reserve today.
Need to explain why. However, the array is still out of society and will continue to be for years to come, “says קמל”ר.
