Report: Israel, U.S. to hold big military exercise


Israel and the United States will hold a joint military training exercise in May, just as the interim agreement with Iran on its nuclear program will be expiring.

The exercise “is going to be big,” an unnamed Israel military officer told Time magazine, who identified the officer as “high ranking.”

“The wind from the Americans into the Israeli sails is, ‘We will maintain our capability to strike in Iran, and one of the ways we show it is to train,’ ” the officer told Time. “It will send signals both to Israel and to the Iranians that we are maintaining our capabilities in the military option.”
