Joint Israeli-US war game when Iran deal expires

A high-ranking Israeli officer told TIME magazine Wednesday, that the US and Israel have scheduled a joint war game in six months time, when the interim nuclear agreement signed between Iran and the West on Sunday expires.
“The strategic decision is to continue to make a noise,” the  Israeli official, who asked to remain anonymous, said.
“In May there’s going to be a joint training exercise with the Americans,” he added. “It’s going to be big.”
Debkafile reported Wednesday that the administration hopes to stop the flow of rhetoric by a package of measures designed to allay Israel’s concerns over the nuclear deal and the rapprochement in progress between the US and Islamic Republic.
According to our sources, the package will include an upgrade of Israeli Air Force capabilities.
