The military forces of the Air Forces of Germany, the United States, France, Greece, India, Italy and Poland and an eighth state that has not been identified, are participating for 11 days in Blue Flag, an Israeli military drill.
Each participant arrived with its planes and more than a thousand soldiers are involved in this simulation. 34 States have sent observers and military attachés.
The drills will focus on two things: anti-air defense and how to escape it. Israel intends to test some of its new defensive and offensive weapons.
