Israel, U.S. Gear up for Large-Scale Missile Defense Drill

The Times of Israel reports: Israel and the United States will train together against the threat of a ballistic missile attack this month, the IDF announced on Saturday.

The exercise, named Juniper Cobra, is held every two years and is meant to prepare the two militaries for the threat of a missile attack, as well as allowing the armies to learn how to better work together.

Details of the exercise have yet to be released and will likely only come out when Juniper Cobra begins late this month, an IDF spokesperson said.
