Israeli, UAE Fighter Jets Fly Together in Large International Exercise in Greece
Israeli fighter jets were flying alongside Emirati aircraft last week as part of a major international aerial exercise hosted by Greece, simulating in-air dogfights, large airstrikes, and rescue operations, the Israeli military confirmed last Tuesday.
This is not the first time that Israeli and Emirati pilots have flown with one another — they both participated in a similar Greek-led exercise in 2017 and an American drill the year before — but it marks a rare case of open military cooperation between the two countries, even following last year’s landmark normalization agreement.
Seven countries joined Greece in its Iniohos exercise this year: Cyprus, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, France, the United States, Spain, and Canada. The exercise kicked off last Sunday and was scheduled to last through last Friday. (TOI / VFI News)
