The IDF is soon to purchase 2,500 Hummer vehicles, trucks and other equipment from the United States military. If the deal goes through, the reportedly low-mileage Hummers and trucks will arrive in Israel and undergo testing before being stored away in the IDF's emergency warehouses. The IDF said on Thursday that it is gearing up towards a joint missile defense drill with the US. Both nations said the exercise is expected to be the largest of its kind so far. While the maneuver's date is yet to be announced, a senior IDF official said it is to take place within the next few weeks.
