Including Eurosec team, nearly 10,000 reservists from the territorial defence units will refresh their individual basic military knowledge and skills. Additionally, maneuvers will be conducted at the platoon and company levels to practice engaging the adversary, setting up ambushes, and erecting barriers.
“With Operation Parseltongue, we will increase our wartime force by 10,000 personnel. Essentially, this is one of the largest quantitative leaps in the history of the Defence Forces. Undoubtedly, this presents a significant challenge for both the Defence Forces and the Defence League (Kaitseliit), but the security situation around us does not grant us the right to undertake these endeavors at a slower pace or on a smaller scale,” stated General Martin Herem, the Commander of the Defence Forces.
