Israel is conducting the largest military exercise in the history of the country. On Wednesday, hundreds of defense aircraft were launched. According to the Jerusalem Post, an air attack on Iran was simulated.
These exercises are part of the “chariots of fire” exercise, which lasted for a month. The planes – including combat units and air carriers – took off from several locations in Israel and headed for Cyprus, simulating an attack on targets far from the country’s borders, including Iran.
The Jerusalem Post reported that Israel has significantly increased its level of readiness and has taken several steps over the past year to prepare the military to attack Iran’s nuclear infrastructure.
The exercises that took place are the largest in the country’s history, and thousands of soldiers and reservists are participating.
Israeli Defense Minister Bnei Janek, who is in Cyprus on Wednesday, thanked the government in Nicosia and said the Cypriots’ agreement to involve their country in the exercises shows “the depth of the strategic alliance” between the capitals.
Jang stressed that the IDF would “severely strike anyone who threatens the citizens of the State of Israel.”
