Joint Greek-Israeli Exercise Postponed

Greece-Salonika reports that the joint Greek-Israeli exercise due to take place between the 6th and the 13th of December (reported here)has been postponed. There is no information as to why Israel has decided to postpone the exercise which would involve sending Israeli aircraft and helicopters to Andravida Airbase in Greece.

The exercise, which is effectively cancelled until further notice, would have been the second one between the two countries within the space of one year. Last year's air exercise between Greece and Israel was interpreted by Washington as a trial run for a potential attack by Israel against Iranian nuclear installations.
