The U.S. army inaugurated its first military base in Israel, which sends a message of readiness to Israel's arch enemy Iran in the region, local media reported on Tuesday.

The base's opening comes as Israel faces a slew of regional threats, especially from its arch enemy Iran, Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth said.

The Israeli military said the new base, located inside an existing Israel Air Force base in the southern region, sends a message of readiness to Israel's enemies, Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
