Israel Launches Largest Ever Air Force Exercise Day After Iran Deal
Some see timing of drill as no coincidence

In what some would see as no coincidence, Israel launched its largest every international air force exercise just a day after the Iran nuclear “deal” which has left Tel Aviv fuming.
According to the Israeli Defense Forces blog, “On Sunday, November 24, for the first time in Israel’s history, the Israel Air Force launched the “Blue Flag” training exercise – an international air force exercise with participation by the US, Italian and Greek air forces.”
The exercise will run until Thursday this week and is designed to “improve Israel’s general air defense capabilities.”
However, the drill, which involves “simulated enemy forces,” will almost certainly test Israel’s offensive mettle given that it takes place just a month after an IAF long-range flight exercise during which the IAF’s ability to fly “exceptionally long distances” was put to the test.
“We are sure it was all planned a long time ago but the irony is not lost on us,” notes Zero Hedge.
