Israel, Greece, USA hold a remarkable exercise in Western Thrace

The joint military exercise called Thracian Cooperation-23, organized by the infantry forces of Israel, Greece, and the USA, in Western Thrace has come to an end.

In a written statement from the Israeli army, it was stated that the joint military exercise of the Israeli, Greek, and US ground forces, which simulated multiple scenarios and carried out on Greek soil, was completed.

INCLUDES AREAS LIKE CONFLICT IN CROWDED NEIGHBORHOODS
In the statement, it was stated that the exercise covered a variety of areas, including conflicts in crowded neighborhoods, logistics during the war, night warfare, engineering capabilities, artillery, and border protection, with a focus on military innovations and managing international professional dialogue.

It was stated that the exercise represents a fundamental and important mechanism in the relations between the armies in order to develop and strengthen the capabilities to deal with and combat regional threats. Tal Wallenberg, Israel's military attaché in Athens, also noted that the exercise is a reflection of the continuation of important relations and cooperation with the Greek Land Forces.

WHICH REGIONAL THREATS IS TARGETED BY THE EXERCISE?
In the information shared in the Israeli press about the exercise, it was stated that "the exercise was carried out with the aim of developing and strengthening capabilities in dealing with and combating regional threats" and that it "covered various areas, including border protection", raised questions.

The country that could pose a threat in the region for Greece, the USA, and Israel was a matter of curiosity.

The following evaluation of analysts, who closely follow the developments in the region, draws attention:

It is known that Greece and its partners do not pose a regional threat in terms of their positions in the border countries Bulgaria, Albania, N. Macedonia. In this case, only Türkiye remains, which can be considered as a "threat". Türkiye is reacting because it sees this. It is dangerous for the balances in the region that Greece carries Israel to the exercises in Western Thrace, where Turks live, despite the harsh statements of the USA, Israel, and Turkey with these exercises, such as "We know what is being done, we see it, we are the target and we will do what is necessary when the time comes". are steps.
