Israel and the United States are developing a large-scale joint military exercise on Israeli territory, considered the largest ever, and with a message aimed at Iran and other countries that are hostile to them.

The military operation, called “Juniper Oak”, began on Monday and also aims to be a demonstration of strength in a scenario of international instability, marked by the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February last year, in addition to the growing rivalry with China, according to Israeli media citing senior US officials.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu observed the ongoing exercise, accompanied by the Defense Minister and senior military officials, at the Army Control Center.

There, “they were informed both about the activity of the air, land and naval forces in the exercise and about the joint training with the US Army”, specified the Government of Israel in a statement.

“This exercise expresses the unbreakable strategic partnership between Israel and the US and constitutes another step in building Israel’s military strength,” said Netanyahu.

For his part, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant emphasized that the exercise “is a positive step that improves and increases Israel’s defense capabilities.”

According to the press, about 6,400 US soldiers are taking part in the exercise along with about 1,100 Israeli soldiers, in addition to 142 planes and 12 ships.

This operation, considered large-scale and very quickly organized, includes exercises on the ground, sea, air and the use of electronic means.

Also used is a wide range of live ammunition that will simulate combat with enemy forces. For its part, the United States uses Himar rocket launchers and cruise missiles.
