A First: A US Military Base in Israel

A First: A US Military Base in Israel

"A permanent base", Brig.

According to Haimovitch, several dozen American soldiers will be stationed at the permanent base in southern Israel, which the Americans and Israel have been working on for the past two years and will have all the facilities necessary for a permanent military presence.

Though Brig. Gen. Haimovich declined to say if this meant United States forces would participate in Israeli combat operations in the future, he said it was "much more significant than that" simply to have a presence of USA soldiers in the country.

She goes on to say how R Kelly would physically harm her for any wrong doing and also lock her in a room for days. She said at the time, "If I can speak out and I can help them get out of that situation, that's what I will do".

Note that the base will act in the Israeli legal field and to be guided by Israeli military directives. "The buildings are facilities on the existing Israeli Air Force Base to support our U.S. service personnel who are working there".

However, Israeli officials believe the establishment of the base will send a message to their enemies, especially Iran. In February, the traditional military exercise Juniper Cobra between the U.S. and Israel will take place. 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. In addition, new systems will be deployed while older ones will be improved. "We'll have Israeli airmen, USA soldiers living and working side by side". He added it would allow for an improvement in interception operations. Gen. Zvika Haimovich, commander of the Israeli Air Force's Aerial Defense Division, said in a statement.

"This symbolizes the strong bond that exists between the United States and Israel", Maj. "And now, with the opening of this site, these crucial interactions will happen every day", he said.
