US Air Force to Have First Base Ever in Israel

US Air Force to Have First Base Ever in Israel”

Israel and the U.S. have inaugurated the first American military base on Israeli soil. High-ranking US officers attended the dedication ceremony. It demonstrates the "years-old alliance between the United States and the State of Israel".

Last week the Aerial Defense Division opened an additional Iron Dome anti-missile battalion.

"For the first time the flag of the United States, our most important ally, will be raised in an IDF base", Brigadier Gen. Zvika Haimovich, the IDF's head of Air Defense, said in a statement. The base, located within an existing Israeli air force base, will serve dozens of USA soldiers operating a missile defense system. Previously, American contractors and soldiers operated the system. The powerful system, which can detect missile launches from a distance of hundreds of kilometers away, was part of US efforts to improve Israel's defensive capabilities in the face of the growing threat from Iran.

Although the deployment of the equipment is shared with Israel, some of its functions are not, and it was placed here with the agreement that US personnel would be allowed to control its operation and the data it provides. Usually, a smaller number of batteries are operational at any given time.
