In a statement released on Sunday, the IDF said, “The Israeli air teams flew ‘shoulder-to-shoulder’ with American teams and simulated joint responses to aerial threats and strikes on targets, through education, cooperation, and mutual growth.”

The exercise, according to a spokesperson for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), “represents an important milestone in the strengthening of international-strategic cooperation between Israel and the American air force, and it contributes to the readiness of our troops.”

Citing a source from the IDF, The Times of Israel reported that the IAF utilized F-16 fighter jets and intelligence-gathering planes, while the USAF also used F-16s. Additionally, the drill was initiated from the Ovda Air Base.
