Israel uses new F-35 stealth fighters in combat

JALAA MAREY

Israel said its recent air strikes inside Syria targeted Iranian military infrastructure, in response to rocket fire aimed at Israeli military positions in the occupied Golan Heights. "Speaking at a Herzliya conference, Norkin added that more than 100 surface-to-air missiles were fired at Israeli jets over Syria". After the acquisition of F-35 Stealth Fighter, Israel's air defense system has reached a staggering 85 percent success rate. According to Norkin, four rockets were intercepted by Israel, and the rest landed outside of Israeli territory.

The air force chief showed an image of jets over Beirut, Lebanon, and said the planes had "already attacked twice on two different fronts".

He detailed the Israeli point of view on the hostilities, which happened on the night of May 9 and involved the forces of Israel, Syria and Iran.

In December 2016, it received the first two planes out of an order of 50, with at least nine delivered so far.

Earlier in May 2018, Israel launched a large-scale attack on what it said were Iranian targets in Syria, raising fears of a major confrontation.

"Israel said that only 20 rockets were fired, some of which were downed, but the truth is that 55 rockets some of which were of heavy caliber were fired at a number of military posts, creating huge explosions that forced all residents in the Golan and some in northern Israel to scramble to bomb shelters in panic", said the group's leader, Hassan Nasrallah, according to Naharnet.

Twenty three fighters, including five Syrian regime troops and 18 other allied forces were said to have been killed in the Israeli attack.

Israeli officials say that they have carried out multiple air strikes in Syria against suspected Iranian bases and those transferring weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Israel and Iran have been coming into increasing contact in Syria, with the Jewish state saying it is trying to combat Iranian influence in the region. It was seemingly the first time Israel attributed an attack directly to Iran rather than its proxies.

Israel continuously asserts that it will not allow Iran to entrench itself in Syria, where it has for years provided military backing to President al-Assad in the civil war. Israel, however, has frequently reiterated that it is not seeking military escalation with the Islamic Regime.
