Do I need new adhesive when I replace my iPhone 5 battery

I saw a video detailing how apple employees are instructed to replace the battery in an iphone and they use new adhesive strips to adhere the new battern inside the case. Is this necessary? I noticed the replacement battery kit does not come with any new adhesive strips. Can you advise?

It is always better to do the job properly. They should include a piece of adhesive strip as the repair kit

If it is iphone 5c/5s, then the adhesive must be included since it is destroyed in the removing process
