    Israeli commandos from the engineering corps Yahalom ("Diamond") unit prepare before a tunnel-hunting drill in Sirkin special forces base, near Tel Aviv March 7, 2012. Israel, fearing a surge in tunnel and bunker construction by Hezbollah and Palestinian militants in neighbouring Lebanon and Gaza, is training crack troops to hunt below ground with the help of robot probes and sniffer dogs.

    Israeli soldiers take up positions during an exercise by the Israeli Defense Forces' Combat Engineering Corps at an army base in central Israel, Wednesday, March 7, 2012. The soldiers practiced finding weapons caches and tunnels.

    Thank you.
    Some pictures in this topic a while back shows a city created for training IDF soldiers, are those places only for the IDF or foreigners do train there as well. The question is because I see a lot of people in the law enforcement going to Israel to conduct anti-terrorism training and wonder if they were actually IDF managed and therefore all these facilities were available to them, or some private corporation that had its own infrastructure.
    Its really hard to get some topic about Israel and the IDF without someone bringing the usual BS into the discussion.

    They are trained in counter-terror by the IDF in IDF facilities .
    Here is a TV report about US Marines that are trained for urban combat in the facility of Tzehelim in August 2011, before being sent to Afghanistan. The TV report is in Hebrew most of the interviews in it are in English:
