US anti-missile systems deployed across Israel for Juniper Cobra drill

The US has begun deploying anti-missile defense systems across all parts of Israel to prepare for the joint Juniper Cobra exercise beginning next week. The five-day US-Israel drill is to simulate a massive simultaneous rocket and missile attack against Israel on two fronts, north and south. It is designed to strengthen military cooperation against regional threats and promote long-term security. In recent years, Juniper Cobra served as training for scenarios involving a ballistic missile attack from Iran. The last exercise took place a year ago.

      The US gives the faulty weapons like the F35s to Israel to make them work properly.

        The U.S. did not give Israel the F35’s. Israel is paying $110 million per plane.

      The US portion will be leaving. Israel’s ATBM systems are much more capable and this is an opportunity for the US to gain experience and test interoperabiliy of the combined systems, something very important to both parties.

    The better plan: Send a few hundred Cruise Missiles to Gaza and Tehran…forget the drills.
