Meanwhile Israel is hosting what’s being called the largest ever multi-national air force exercise – with more than a hundred fighter planes taking part.
The combat training came just a couple of months after another large-scale military drill conducted jointly with the U.S. And, with a parliamentary election in the country just around the corner, a growing number of Israelis are questioning such huge expense on war games, as Paula Slier explains.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said stopping Iran from building nuclear weapons will be his top priority, if he wins in the upcoming election. Despite Tehran denying the allegations, it’s viewed as a major threat in Israel. As RT’s Paula Slier reports, many Israelis are already preparing for war.
