In an apparent message to Iran, the Israeli military says it has carried a "special long-range flight exercise" and posted rare footage of the drill online.
The release of the video comes just days before Western powers are to open new nuclear talks with Iran.
Israeli officials said the drill took place over Greece, a key regional ally. The military has done similar drills in the past but releasing the footage appears aimed at sending a message to Iran before the talks that a viable military options remains.
The U.S. and its allies accuse Iran of developing nuclear weapons.
