According to a report from Israel’s Channel 13, the US will participate in planned Israeli military exercises that will simulate a large-scale attack on Iran later this month as part of Israel’s month-long Chariots of Fire drills.
The Channel 13 report said that the US Air Force will take part in the exercises with refueling planes that will join Israeli jets as they simulate entering Iranian territory and carrying out repeated airstrikes.
The simulated attack on Iran will start on May 29 over the Mediterranean Sea. According to The Times of Israel, it marks the first the Israeli Air Force will practice a large-scale assault on Iran.
The planned drills are seen as a message to Tehran and come amid stalled negotiations between the US and Iran to revive the Iran nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA, which Israel has pressed President Biden not to reenter.
Last year, the head of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said the Israeli military was “accelerating” plans to attack Iran, and the IDF received a budget boost for such planning.
The IDF has begun closer coordination with the US and its Arab allies in the Middle East by being put under US Central Command’s (CENTCOM) area of responsibility. Israel previously was covered under US European Command since it did not have formal relations with many US allies in the Middle East.
Michael Kurilla, the new head of CENTCOM, arrived in Israel Tuesday for his first official visit to the country. Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz is headed to Washington this week to hold talks with his American counterpart, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.

Israel dream is to have a whole coalition with NATO invading Iran just for them and climaxing seeing Iranians dying like they do with Palestinians, and still they are claiming “We are against the regime not the people”.
Israel top dream is to see Iran destroyed and balkanized, and Iran is supposed to sit there going nothing but dismantling all of its ballistic missiles and stop being ally with people US/Zionists doesn’t like as well to dismantle every nuclear power plants/anything related even it is in full compliance with the NPT?
All of that while 200 nuclear warheads are thought to be aimed at Tehran (9 million people) and Qom (which is a holy city with 1,25 million people).
That about sums it up….
Not all of those 200 are aimed at Iran. They want to wipe out everyone if they’re going down. You know, the Samson Option.
Someone wants a nuclear war………………………………………………………………….
Someone might get one too. Ukraine or Iran, North Korea or Pakistan, pushing it again and again is only too likely to get it.
uncle sam ran a simulation/drill of 9/11 and used it as cover for the actual 9/11
Boston Marathon. A “drill” was being run that very day. Men with backpacks similar to the ones the kids that were alleged to have been carrying were running around. Some “drill”, eh?
Prince Bandar (Bush) provided & paid for the hijackers. Mossad provided the white panel van guys planting the nano thermite. The US head of the Joint Chiefs got the SAC way off station. And Robert Mueller III provided the fake investigation. These three -US, Israel, Saudi Arabia- are bonded in blood and, demonstrably, will balk at nothing. The one & only thing that might save Iran is a poor man’s nuke, … like the ones US Dept of Defense was producing in Ukraine.
The only thing Israel will do if push comes to shove is to offer to hold Uncle Sucker’s coat.
After our best ally ever bravely rushed to Americas side in the present troubles in Ukraine and immediately and clearly denounced the Russian invasion, how can we possibly refuse the request to get us involved in a particularly stupid war.
If only the World would wake up, open its eyes and recognise the evil that is US/Israel.
OK-so Russia in the Ukraine is totally alright with you, Moslems imprisoned in China is ok,killing of prisoners for their organs is ok with you,ect.
Russia in Ukraine is not much different than NATO on Iraq. Main difference is that Iraq was being attacked by 10 powerful countries from 10,000 mile away. Russia is fighting an enemy on its border.
Moslems imprisoned in China is mostly propaganda. Their organs? You have been listening to Ukranian propaganda.
Report: Iran Military Simulation of Large-Scale Attack on Israel
This must be more of that “naked aggression” Iran is showing towards Israel.
If Israel is going to unleash the US on Iran then Iran’s only option is to field a basic nuclear capability as quickly and covertly as they can. It wouldn’t take much to kill over half the Israeli population, 100 kt on Tel Aviv, Haifa, and West Jerusalem would probably do it. The Iranians have missiles with sufficient range, so a test of a nuclear warhead that was claimed to be operational would provide a great deal of deterrence, which is probably the only thing that will stop Israel and its sidekick. Actually, what am I saying … probably nothing will stop the onrushing holocaust. I should just finish my coffee.
Enjoy your coffee…
This is just for show, paper tigering…! Israel knows lots of Iranian missiles are pointing at Tel Aviv from Iran and from Hezbollah in Lebanon…! And US knows the same reaction could materialize to their bases in Persian Gulf…!
Yup. Hey, Jason! Want to tell us again that the Iran talks are “almost complete”? People have to be high on something to keep telling us that.
Another major war on top of oil supply? That is about the worst idea possible right now.
Look at what Ukraine has done to Russian ships in the Black Sea, firing missiles from shore. That is what Iran would do to the world’s Persian Gulf oil supply.
I am just about sick and tired of this bs….Wars can get started this way…Israel is always the wild card…
In very point of conflict in the world today, we have our fingers on. Middle East, Ukraine, South China Sea.
