Serhat TUNAR -TDO- After Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw the US army from Syria, the military cooperation between the United States and Israel had further increased and the two countries had initiated a joint air defense exercise. As part of the United States and Israel's one-month air defense exercise, the American High Altitude Region Air Defense (THAAD) American ballistic missile defense system was brought to Israel and deployedfor the first time.
According to the Israeli-based Haaretz newspaper, it is not expected to conduct missile destruction experiments with the THAAD system deployed in Israel.
As is known, THAAD can destroy short and medium range missiles in the air. The American-made radar works in coordination with the Israeli early-warning system, with the THAAD system aimed at gaining time for Israel to respond to missile attacks against Iran.
