(Worthy News) - Major meetings between US top military leaders and Israeli military in November seemed to presage an imminent conflict with Iran.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley met Sunday with Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi, the new IDF chief, to discuss "a series of operational topics and regional developments."
The meeting followed on the heels of visits by US Air Force Chief of Staff David L. Goldfein to Israel for "the most advanced international exercise ever held in Israel" involving stealth F-35 jets last week and Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, head of US Central Command, to Israel on November 10, which seemed to indicate a deeper strategic partnership between the two countries than has ever existed before.
General McKenzie in an interview with Foreign Policy said "it is very possible [Iran] will attack again," a statement Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu echoed Sunday by saying "additional attacks" by Iran were in the works.
