Israel-Greece Conclude Combined Air Drill
Spurned by Turkey, a partner in bilateral and multilateral military exercises for more than a decade, the Israel Air Force is now conducting routine drills with Ankara's Aegean rival, Greece. The large-scale drill involved UH-60 and AH-64 helicopters and fighter jets from the Israel Air Force, along with Apaches, AS332 Super Puma and fighters from the Hellenic Air Force.
"The training included flight and landing in mountainous terrain and under changing weather conditions," according to an Oct. 14 statement released by the Israeli military at the conclusion of the drill.
