Israel, US to Begin Joint Military Exercise Today

This morning (Sunday), Israel and the United States will begin a joint military exercise for the purpose of protecting their citizens from missile fire, within the frameworks of a training operation entitled ‘Juniper Cobra’. The exercise will test already active defense systems against the firing of missiles.

The joint exercise takes place every two years and is meant to examine the armies’ cooperative responses to missile attacks. Roughly 1,000 American soldiers landed in Israel in order to participate in the exercise.
