In Photos: Israel, U.S. Hold Joint Drills Involving F-35 Jets Despite ‘COVID-19 Fears’

On March 29, the Israeli and US Air Forces conducted joint drills called “Enduring Lightning” in southern Israel. According to the Israeli military, the involved forces used fifth-generation F-35 and F-35I fighter jets to practice engaging various air and ground-based targets.

It seems the COVID-19 panic around the world does not stop the US and Israel from preparing for conflicts in the Middle East. Earlier in March, the US and Israel called off the scheduled joint exercise Juniper Cobra over COVID-19 concerns, but immediately found that this was a wrong decision.

    The COVID is a virus for dummies. The US pilots and those of the isreali regime would probably know this already. Or pehaps they didn’t?

    Perhaps they called off Juniper Cobra until the deep state brass called and told them that the virus was one of theirs and nothing to worry about.

    And this one came over midwest Jutland, Denmark today.
    It sure looks like a KC-130J with baskets, the funny thing is that our F-16AM uses booms, not baskets for refuelling.
    And last week, around 2200, some foreign combatjets flew by very low, they werent F-16 because they sounded to rough and grindy, so yes, military exercises is clearly still going on, COVID-19 or not.

    Is the COVID 19 drill. They fly low, to catch the virus. Higher they can’t fly anyway!

    Little known fact that Americans are clueless about
    Israeli current Fleet of 22 F-35’s and planned 35 by 2025 – paid for by the US Taxpayer at a cost of $3.5-4 BILLION dollars. Literally a Goyim military donation to God’s Chosen Noses 🙂
