The IDF will simulate striking targets far from Israel’s borders with a large number of planes while simultaneously acquiring new targets on various fronts in real-time during its largest military drill in history. The drill is unique and unprecedented in scope and will enable the army to maintain a high level of readiness in an ever-changing region, the IDF said. It aims to improve the military’s capabilities in an intense, multifront and prolonged war on all its borders.

During the drill, the IAF will practice striking targets far from Israel’s borders, while troops continue to contend with a multifront war on its borders. The IDF is planning several military options against Iran should the nuclear talks between the West and the Islamic Republic fail, and it will practice one of the possible options during the exercise. The military will also implement the lessons learned from Operation Guardian of the Walls throughout the entire month. During the 11 days of fighting last year, there was heavy rioting in those areas as well as in mixed Arab-Israeli cities such as Lod and Jaffa. Two people were killed, and several civilians were injured.

The US and Israeli Air Forces will take part in a joint exercise simulating an attack on Iran, Channel 13 News reported. The simulated attack on Iran will be held as part of the 'Chariots of Fire' military exercise, one of the longest such exercises in the history of the IDF. Earlier today, the Commander of the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), General Michael “Erik” Kurilla, has landed in Israel for his first official visit in his new position. The visit, hosted by the Chief of the General Staff, Lieutenant General Aviv Kohavi, will focus on the ongoing operational cooperation between the State of Israel and the U.S., maintaining regional stability and dealing with joint operational threats and challenges in the region.
