Israel to Use F-35i Stealth Fighters in Syria

When the United States provided Israel with the latest in fighter plane technology — the stealth jet F-35i — it was to help protect the skies over the Holy Land. And now the plane will prove its worth. Arutz Sheva reports that in light of Russia giving advanced missile systems to the evil Assad regime, Israel will use its stealth fighters over Syria:

The decision comes after Syria began receiving on Tuesday its new S-300 surface-to-air missile defense system.

The new system, sold to Syria by Russia, is intended to stop enemy planes - including Israeli planes - from attacking.

Galei Tzahal quoted a source in the Israeli Air Force who said that in light of the situation in Syria, Israel has decided to increase the use of F-35 stealth fighter in its attacks on Syria.

This step is expected to allow the Air Force to better handle the growing threat in Syria, the source explained.

"The coming attacks won't be the first, but they will be safer for the pilots in light of the new reality in Syria's skies," the source told Galei Tzahal...

"We are flying the F-35 over the entire Middle East and that has become part of our operational capability," Israeli Air Force Commander Maj. Gen. Amikam Norkin said then. "We were the first in the world to attack with the F-35. The Israeli Air Force has twice carried out strikes with the F-35, on two different fronts."
