The IDF is currently in the midst of a large-scale training exercise with the US military. The exercise, titled ‘Juniper Cobra 2018’ has been taking place since March 4 and will continue until the 15 of the month.

Juniper Cobra 2018 is a bilateral exercise with the Israeli Defense Forces to prepare our forces to counter any ballistic missile threats to Israel.

Over 2,500 US troops, routinely based in Europe, are participating in the exercise, alongside 1,400 Israeli missile defense, logistics, medical, and additional IDF units.

Over the past several weeks, extensive preparations for the exercise have been conducted, including the reception of American forces to Israel, via air and sea. The purposes of the exercise are to strengthen the cooperation and coordination between the two militaries, to promote bilateral learning and enhance aerial defense capabilities.
