Occupied Jerusalem, MINA – Thousands of US troopers have been stationed in 1948 Occupied Palestine to participate in a joint military exercise with Israeli occupation forces at the pretext of confronting missile attacks by Iran and Hezbollah.
The biennial “Juniper Cobra” drill is set to start on March 4 and will continue until March 15, with participation of 2,500 forces from the US European Command and 2,000 IOF soldiers, according to Israeli Makan TV.
This year, the maneuver will include advanced computer simulations of a massive ballistic missile attack against Israel by Hezbollah and Iran, PIC reported.
During the 2018 Juniper Cobra drills, the US and Israeli forces will train on the long-range Arrow and Patriot air defense systems, the medium-range David’s Sling, and the short-range Iron Dome.
This will be the first time that the David’s Sling will be used in a Juniper Cobra exercise. The IOF has installed Patriot missile systems across the occupied Palestinian territories in the lead-up to the drills.(R/R04/RS5)
