More than 100 foreign fighter jets from dozens of countries will arrive this year for a joint training program.

The IAF is in the midst of getting ready for the occasion, a military source said, adding that preparations for the program are currently taking place across all Israeli air bases.

The joint training will include practicing bombing runs and air-to-air combat.

The foreign air forces are attracted to Israel as a training location due to its knowledge of weapons systems held by Arab states, Channel 2 reported on Tuesday.

“This fact has led many foreign forces to train in Israel, alongside coalitions of states and aerial forces that work together,” the report added.
