The US has proposed to Israel the idea of conducting joint military planning regarding Iran, the Axios news site reports.

The report, citing three US and Israeli officials, says US officials are presenting the idea as an unprecedented cooperation that would significantly upgrade military cooperation between the two allies.

However, the report says Israel is skeptical, fearing it could “tie Israel’s hands” from taking independent action against Iran and its nuclear program.

Israel has not rejected the proposal, but asked for clarifications as to what the practical meaning would be, the report says.
