Israel says it's the first country to use F-35 in combat

Israel says it's the first country to use F-35 in combat

"The Adir aircraft are operational and are participating in missions". The United States has declined for decades to take a position on the status of this territory, but following President Donald Trump's decision to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, DeSantis and others see an opportunity for the United States to recognize another territorial reality-that the Golan Heights will not be given back to Syria, particularly in light of the strife gripping the country.

On May 10, minister of military affairs, Avigdor Lieberman, claimed that Israel had "hit nearly all of the Iranian infrastructure in Syria" in response to a barrage of 20 rockets fired at Israeli military outposts in the occupied Golan Heights.

"We are flying the F-35 all of the Middle East and have already attacked twice on two different fronts".

Israel was the first foreign state to obtain the US-made F-35, receiving the initial batch of two planes in December 2016, out of an order of 50.

The stealth fighters are operated by the air force's Golden Eagle Squadron, based in the Nevatim Air Base in central Israel.

In response to the IRGC attack, Israel conducted dozens of raids against Iranian targets in Syria, hitting approximately 50 positions.

In his comments on 22 May, Norkin also made reference to an Israeli strike on missiles Iran had allegedly transported to Syria, without providing a timeframe.

Ossic is the latest crowdfunding failure to completely screw its backers
Founders Jason Riggs and Joy Lyons will have a lot on their hands as backers are now up in arms over their false advertisement. A Facebook group for angry Ossic backers has accumulated 1,800 members in 48 hours, according to the group's administrator.

"The Iranians fired 32 rockets, we intercepted 4 of them & the rest fell outside Israeli territory".

The Israeli planes involved in the operation were attacked by more than 100 surface-to-air missiles during the confrontation, Norkin reported.

The congressman believes that by recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, the United States would make it clear that it will never force Jerusalem to relinquish the territory. He added that the IDF's air-defense systems, Arrow, David's Sling and Iron Dome, have an 85% success rate.

Iran and Syria accuse the Israelis of violating global law by its continued involvement in Syria and say it simply uses any pretext it can concoct to hurt Syria.

The Israeli regime has a history of military aggression in the region. According to the new Information released by Norkin on Monday, "more than 100" missiles were launched at IAF planes, which appears to be an increase from earlier figures. Tehran had since repeatedly vowed revenge. It was seemingly the first time Israel attributed an attack directly to Iran rather than its proxies.

Israel has been blamed for a series of other recent strikes inside Syria that have killed Iranians, though it has not acknowledged them.

Israel says it has carried out scores of strikes in Syria against suspected Iranian emplacements or arms transfers to Hezbollah guerrillas in neighbouring Lebanon.
