US allies plan big Gulf naval exercise in May

Published: 04.08.13, 19:44 / Israel News

The United States and its allies will stage a naval exercise in the Gulf in May to practice minesweeping and escorting ships, the US Navy said on Monday, a maneuver likely to be seen in the region as guarding against a potential threat from Iran.


Representatives from more than 30 nations will gather in Bahrain for the International Mine Countermeasures Exercise (IMCMEX) 13 from May 6-30, eight months after they staged a previous edition of the exercises at a time when Israel and Iran were trading threats of war. (Reuters)
