Israeli Troops Head to Cyprus for Joint Exercise

The exercise is part of the ongoing cooperation between the IDF and the Cypriot Military


According to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit, an extensive military drill will be held in Cyprus, involving air and ground forces from both countries.

The exercise is said to be part of the ongoing cooperation between the IDF and the Cypriot Military. The IDF emphasizes that the exercise was preplanned as part of the military's 2017 training program and is intended to maintain the competence and readiness of the forces.

Israel and Cyprus have held several joint military drills in recent years. Training in Cyprus allows the IDF greater freedom of action than in Israel, as well as an opportunity to exercise in different terrains which are difficult to simulate in Israel.
