Israel just announced it has finalized a deal with Lt. General Frank Gorenc, commander of the US Third Air Force in Germany, that will bring several thousand U.S. troops and two advanced missile systems to the country for an unprecedented defense drill.

Yaakov Katz of the Jerusalem Post reports the "largest-ever" missile defense exercise will commence this spring, in response to Iran's nuclear ambitions.

The U.S. will deploy its Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile system and its ship based Aegis system to simulate intercepting an incoming salvo into Israel. The two systems will work in conjunction with Israel's Arrow, Patriot, and Iron Dome missile systems.

The announcement came in conjunction with Israel's pledge to move batteries of its Iron Dome in the coming months to counter rocket attacks, and stationing additional batteries in Haifa to guard oil refineries there.

Israel is also increasing its missile development budget for FY 2012 to include three new Iron Dome batteries along its northern and southern borders.

Of course, what this drill means in regard to a strike on Iran's nuclear facilities remains to be seen — if it means anything at all.
