The Israeli regimes army and the US European Command have concluded two concurrent military exercises after two weeks of drills in southern Israel and the Mediterranean Sea.

Juniper Stallion 13 and Noble Melinda 13 were bilateral exercises held between the US and Israeli air forces and navies respectively.

The exercises took place as part of regularly scheduled training between the two allies.

Neither exercise was related to any current real-world events, an Israeli army spokesperson said on Thursday.
