Trident Juncture Begins in Italy

It was followed by a large aerial display with fighter jets, transport planes and helicopters from various NATO member countries.

The base in Trapani is one of the 16 locations from which the exercise will run in Italy, Spain and Portugal.

The exercise will simulate an invasion by a fictitious enemy in East Africa to a smaller neighbor and involve elements from NATO’s land, sea and air forces.
