Persia (Iran), Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah (Turkey) of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. (Ezekiel 38:5-8)
This is an event to keep an eye on. As we know Iran is going to lead the muslim nations down unto the mountains of Israel (Judea/Samaria) at anytime (Ezekiel 38,39), a major military drill would be an excellent ruze to disguise its real intentions.
