The IDF has released a video of U.S. marines learning from Israelis. “We are learning new techniques. I love it. We want to come back,” says one marine. The video below shows Israelis teaching the Americans how to use the new made-in-Israel Tabor rifle. 

 The video is from a training exercise in Israel last year but was released this month in honor of American Independence Day.

“It’s always fun to learn something, even with the language barrier. You can’t beat it,” said an American. “We have strong relations with Israel, and we come over and improve them. It places a stronger bond between two allies.”

The U.S. Marines trained under the guidance of the IDF Counter Terrorism School, the unit responsible for training IDF forces in counter terrorism tactics and measures.

This past May, U.S. Army photographers traveled to Israel in order to take a “Combat Camera” course administered by the IDF, regarding various photo-taking techniques in the field during combat operations.
