DEBKAfile – Israel postpones 'Juniper Cobra' at last minute

(DEBKAfile) — US and Israeli forces were already poised to launch their joint Juniper Cobra strategic missile defense exercise, which takes place every two years, to begin Monday Oct. 12, when at noon an Israeli military spokesman suddenly announced its postponement by one week.

The announcement came three days after Turkey called off its sixth annual international air maneuver when the US and Italy pulled out in protest against the Israeli air force’s last-minute exclusion by Ankara.
