Israel to Boost Cooperation with NATO

Israel is seeking to enhance military cooperation with the NATO air forces through large-scale drills in foreign skies and hosting foreign air forces to train in its training facilities.
 
According to a report by Ha’aretz published on Monday, Israel hosted Greek Hellenic Air Force for a joint drill at the Uvda military base in southern Israel in November.
 
In contrast with previous drills that took place in Greece, November’s exercise was not publicized by Israeli military officials, although pictures of the drill were uploaded to the Hellenic Air Force web site.
 
Greece sent five F-16 block 52 fighter jets for the five-day exercise, which included practice air fights as well as ground attacks.
 
A group of Israeli F-15 and F-16 fighter jets also participated in the exercise, along with Boeing fuel supplier airplanes.
 
In addition to the joint drill with Greece, the Italian Air Force aircraft are expected to arrive in southern Israel for training in the next few days.
