IDF F-15 fighter jets accompanied two American B-1 bomber fighters and a US KC-10 plane, which crossed the Israeli skies on their way to the Gulf, the IDF announced on Thursday. The flight took place as part of a collaboration with the US Army, which is a significant step in maintaining security in the skies of Israel and the Middle East," the statement read. The US is also collaborating with Israel, UAE and Bahrain on a multilateral maritime drill in the Red Sea, which was also announced on Thursday. The drill will reportedly last five days, where "the training will enhance interoperability between participating forces’ maritime interdiction teams," according to a statement by the United States Naval Forces Central Command.
