Report: 100 foreign jets training for Syria scenarios in Israel

Jan. 7, 2013 5:20 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 8, 2013 2:09 P.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israel's Channel 2 TV station reported on Sunday that 100 fighter jets from around the world are training in Israel, including preparation for possible intervention in Syria.

The foreign pilots and aircraft arrived in the country in recent days, and will examine crisis scenarios if Syria uses chemical weapons, the report said.

It did not release the names of the countries participating.

Last week, the TV channel said the Israeli air force was preparing for the joint training, which would include practicing bombing runs and air-to-air combat.
