U.S., Israel Plan Joint Military Exercise For Next Spring
This spring, thousands of U.S. soldiers will be deployed in Israel to participate in the country’s largest-ever missile defense exercise amid Iran’s push to obtain materials that could be used to develop nuclear weapons.
According to The Jerusalem Post, Lt. Gen. Frank Gorenc, who is in command of the Germany-based U.S. Third Air Force, traveled to Israel late last month to finalize plans for American participation in the drill.
During the drill, the United States will establish command posts in Israel and the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) will establish a command post at the U.S. European Command (EUCOM) headquarters in Germany in an effort to establish a joint task force that could counter large-scale Mideast conflict, according to the article.
The United States is expected to supply Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and ship-based Aegis ballistic missiles to simulate interception of missiles fired at Israel. The American systems will work in conjunction with Israeli missile defense systems.
