Israel is an important strategic partner of the UK and, as part of that relationship, the Ministry of Defence has an ongoing and wide ranging dialogue with the Israeli Defence Force and Israeli Ministry of Defence, including in the field of training. This engagement is in line with Her Majesty's Government policy of supporting the Middle East peace process by having a balanced relationship with the Israelis and the Palestinians. Engagement activity is spread throughout the Services so this information is not held in the requested format.
