Israel has launched its largest military exercise in almost 20 years – Chicago Tribune

The Israeli military is in the midst of its largest military exercise in nearly two decades, focusing on a potential war with Hezbollah.

Held in the north of the country, the roughly two-week drill – dubbed “The Light of Grain” – comes amid rising tension along the Lebanese-Israeli border, where Hezbollah, the Lebanese political party and militia, has maintained a presence for decades.

The drill will simulate “scenarios we’ll be facing in the next confrontation with Hezbollah,” an Israeli defense source told Agence France-Presse.

So Israel just happens to be in the largest military exercise in almost 20 years, and then there is this major hit on a Syrian (Iranian) chemical weapons factory. The Syrians are threatening “dangerous repercussions” over this attack. This is all too convenient.

Could it be that the Israelis highly suspect some serious retaliation for the attack on the chemical weapons factory? The retaliation could come in the form of a major attack on Israel, hence the unusually large Israeli military exercise at the same time. I’m speculating but we could be in for some serious fireworks in the not too distant future.
