WASHINGTON (JTA) — The United States and Israel have rescheduled their joint military exercise for around October.

Top U.S. military officials will arrive in Israel later this month to plan the anti-missile exercise, the largest of its kind, after pushing it back in December from a scheduled spring launch. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak requested the delay for budgetary reasons.
