Sources in Israel revealed that 100 warplanes and a number of air weapons will be used in one of the largest air drills on short and long range attacks and defense operations.         

The Israeli forces did not hide the fact that these drills will include trainings on operations which are similar to those carried out by the NATO in Libya and which led to the toppling of the regime.

The Israeli Air Defense anticipated the arrival of officers and pilots from participating countries to carry out drills using a plane named “the Red Plane”. A Mega 29 plane will also be used for long-range targets.                      

Within what Israel is promoting, the drills include coordination and cooperation on operations that might take place in Syria if the decision of striking the chemical weapons warehouses were taken.                        

Sources close to the Mossad said that various meetings were held between Israeli officials and leaders of Syrian rebels in the framework of the Israeli American preparations for a joint military operation in Syria in order to defend the Golan Heights.         

In preparation for these drills, the Israeli army called for the evacuation of around 500 Palestinian homes in Wadi el-Maleh North of Jordan to the West bank.
