In biannual military drills, Israel and the US have put 6 different missile systems to the test. Juniper Cobra 2016 is a joint exercise “aimed at improving cooperation and coordination between the two militaries, and training defenses against ballistic missile attacks.”
The US has engaged Aegis, THAAD, and Patriot missile systems, while Israel has unleashed Arrow 3, David’s Sling, and Iron Dome. Each missile system is designed to take out rockets in various ranges and altitudes. The systems were linked to simulators and an American official called the joint exercise “the highest priority exercise for the EUCOM in 2016.”
Ultimately, Israel will stand alone. Let’s pray that it doesn’t happen on our watch! Pray for our governmental and military leaders to stand strong with Israel!
