By Hamodia Staff

YERUSHALAYIM — The Israeli and French Air Forces concluded on Tuesday the joint Eastern Breeze international exercise, in which they practiced aerial cooperation in Israel’s skies.

Four FASF Rafale aircraft participated in the exercise alongside IAF F-16i aircraft from the 201st Squadron.

As part of the exercise, the French carrier strike group arrived in the Mediterranean Sea. IAF and FASF air crews flew “wing-to-wing” while practicing joint strikes and counteracting aerial threats in an effort to share knowledge and benefit from one another. The exercise was hailed by both sides an important milestone in the development of the strategic cooperation between the IAF and the French Air Force.

Eastern Breeze is one of many international exercises that have taken place recently as part of the 2022 training program.
