The Israel Defense Forces publishes footage of joint aerial exercises it held this week with the US military, simulating strikes against Iran and its regional terror proxies.
During the drills, four IAF F-35i fighter jets accompanied four American F-15 aircraft through Israel’s skies, and an American KC-135 aerial refueling aircraft refueled several IAF F-16i fighter jets.
The IDF says the drills also “simulated an operational scenario and long-distance flights.”
“The Intelligence Directorate conducted an extensive simulation that replicated a campaign against distant countries,” the IDF says, apparently referring to Iran.
“This exercise tested the IDF’s abilities at gathering intelligence, researching and outlining targets, and making intelligence available to the operational forces,” the IDF adds.
