WSJ: Trump ordered to transfer Israel to Central Command

Thus, the main Middle East command will conduct a military policy towards both Israel and the Arab countries, the newspaper writes.

President Donald Trump ordered to expand the area of ​​responsibility of the US military command in the Middle East to include Israel, the Wall Street Journal reported..

It is about the reorganization of the American defense structure, which has long been advocated by pro-Israel groups..

Citing unnamed American officials, the newspaper writes that the decision means that US Central Command will pursue American military policy towards both Israel and the Arab countries..

It signifies a departure from the long-standing structure of the American military command, imposed due to hostility between Israel and some of the Pentagon’s Arab allies, the publication says..

Trump recently ordered the changes, but they have not yet been officially announced, the newspaper reported..

The Wall Street Journal noted that Israel was for a long time in the area of ​​responsibility of the US European Command.

This allowed American generals in the Middle East to interact with Arab countries, without causing associations with Israel, which at that time was considered an enemy in the Arab world, the newspaper writes..
