A statement by the Israeli army said that these maneuvers do not include any military activity.
It was decided before to conduct these maneuvers in December 2000 but they were postponed for reasons, attributed, according to military sources, to minimizing the presence of the 6th American fleets in the East of the Mediterranean region since the attack which targeted the American warship " USS Cool" at the Yemeni port of Aden on October 12.
These joint maneuverings are considered the third among the three countries since 1998.
