An Israeli show of force in the Golan Heights

Israel's military launches a surprise large-scale exercise Wednesday in the occupied Golan Heights, testing its battle readiness amid tensions over Iran's nuclear drive and civil war in Syria. A military spokeswoman said the exercise was part of a routine training schedule. Israel Radio said the drill simulated a sudden outbreak of hostilities on the Golan Heights that would require swift troop deployment. The exercise comes as Israel is urged world powers to set a red line for Iran's nuclear program. Iran has vowed to strike back against Israel if it is attacked. Israel fears such retaliation could include rocket salvoes from Iran's allies in Lebanon and Gaza. It is also concerned rogue elements in Syria could seize chemical weapons and launch attacks.
