( Israel, the United States, and Canada will hold a joint aerial exercise this summer to improve coordination in preventing terror attacks on civilian aircrafts, Israel Hayom reported.

The exercise will be the first of its kind. Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz said the drill would allow the three countries to “react more effectively” to threats of terrorism against civilian planes.

Katz said cooperation in this realm is of “inimitable importance.”
