US army opens ‘first ever stationary unit’ in Israel

New York

The United States has inaugurated a permanent military base in Israel, poised as “the first ever stationary unit” there.
Brigadier General Zvika Haimovitch told reporters Monday that this is the first time the US flag is flying in an Israeli military base, further praising the “historic and exciting” inauguration.
The base is purportedly located inside the Israeli air force’s Mashabim air base, west of the towns of Dimona and Yerucham.
“Due to the close cooperation between us and the American forces in the field of air defense, as well as the extensive experience accumulated by the Aerial Defense Division, it was decided that the first permanent base of the American Army would be established at the School of Air Defense,” Haimovitch said.—Agencies
