Joint US-’Israeli’ Juniper Cobra Drill as Threats of New War on Lebanon Looms
Local Editor

Thousands of American and "Israeli" occupation military forces are holding a month-long joint military exercise in the occupied territories amid the Tel Aviv regime's rising threats of a new war against Lebanon.

Juniper Cobra

US and Zionist officials said Thursday they had launched the so-called Juniper Cobra 2018 military drill that simulates a missile attack on the "Israeli" entity.

Some 2,500 forces, including 1,400 marines and 1,100 naval personnel from the US European Command [USEUCOM] as well as 2,000 "Israeli" soldiers are taking part in the biennial drill, in what is said to be the largest joint combat exercise between the Zionist entity and the US.

Two US Navy vessels have taken up positions off the "Israeli"-occupied Palestinian coast and will be taking part in the exercise.

During the ninth Juniper Cobra military exercise, the US and "Israeli" forces will train on the long-range Arrow and Patriot missile systems, the medium-range David's Sling, and the short-range Iron Dome.

Since 2001, Zionist and US forces have conducted a total of eight Juniper Cobra joint combat exercises, including the most recent exercise in February 2016.

In this respect, "Israeli" air force commander B.G Tzvika Haimovich said the drill "will serve as an opportunity" for the Zionist military "to enhance operational capabilities in the face of high-trajectory threats."

"In the coming weeks we will train together to face complex and challenging scenarios, which are relevant to the dynamic range of threats that we must be prepared to face," he said.

Lt. Col. Tal Kaduri, head of cooperation for "Israel's" air force, also said the main goal of Juniper Cobra is to see how both forces can answer what he claimed to be "the evolving threats that Iran is posing."

The exercise comes as the Zionist entity has recently stepped up its threats against Lebanon, prompting speculation that a new "Israeli" act of aggression is on the horizon.
