While the Biden administration can appear lukewarm to the idea of attacking Iran at times, the US and Israeli militaries are talking openly about preparations for striking Iran.
In a recent trip to Washington Israeli Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi and Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley discussed holding a joint Air Force drill in the coming weeks. The drill would be focused on training soldiers for a possible conflict between Israel and Iran or Iran’s military proxies in the region.
“We are at a critical point in time that requires the acceleration of operational plans and cooperation against Iran and its terrorist proxies in the region,” Kochavi said in a statement.
The meetings were cut short when General Kochavi had to return due to the double bombing in Jerusalem.
