The new USA base will wave the American flag for the first time and house dozens of US soldiers permanently stationed there.
"It's nothing short of historic", he said. "It involved a significant allocation of resources, in the understanding that this was right and necessary and part of the United States' assets in Israel". The soldiers will work from a special military base that has been set up within an already existing Israeli Air Force base.
According to the Times of Israel, Haimovitch also said that this base "allows us to improve our defence in discovery and in interception and in preparedness". "It will not get us to 100 per cent, but it will get us much closer to achieving important things during war".
The new base will be under the command of the USA military's European Command.
Despite being the first permanent US military facility, it is far from the first significant military expenditure by the undisputed allied country. We'll have Israeli airmen, USA soldiers living and working side by side. "It is a presence as part of the joint effort of Israel and the USA to improve defence". There are conflicting reports regarding which military specifically will retain jurisdiction over the base. Thousands of Israeli and American soldiers take part in the drill. In partnership with the U.S., Israel has installed a multilayered system to fight off both long-range attacks from Iran as well as crude rockets fired from Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon and the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
