Joint US-Israel drill will help build 'regional stability,' says IDF

Sunday, February 21, 2016 | , Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - A joint IDF-US European Command missile drill, dubbed Juniper Cobra 16, began Sunday, the military said.

The drill is aimed at improving cooperation and coordination between the two militaries, and training defenses against ballistic missile attacks.

The drill, held since 2001 and now conducted every two years, is taking place for the eight time. In 2014, more than 1,700 US soldiers arrived in Israel to practice missile defenses in computerized simulations.

“This drill provides an opportunity for both militaries for joint learning and training,” the IDF Spokesman’s Office said. “The drill is another step in strategic relations between Israel and the US, and will contribute much to regional stability.” [ Source ]
