Israel does not contribute troops to any of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO)'s overseas operations. Israeli naval vessels have in the past participated in “PASSEX” visit exercises with NATO-flagged vessels, but no longer do so.

As with all partners, Israeli officers are eligible to attend certain NATO training courses on technical subjects, alongside colleagues from their regional Mediterranean Dialogue (MD) neighbours. Small numbers do so each year.
