Israeli Air Force Chief: F-35I Stealth Fighters Participated In Strikes On Syria

F-35I stealth fighters of the Israeli Air Force (IAF) have participated in strikes on Syria, Israel’s air force commander Maj. Gen. Amikam Norkin said on May 22.

“The F-35 squadron has become an operational squadron. We are flying the F-35 all over the Middle East. It had become part of our operational capabilities. We are the first to attack using the F-35 in the Middle East and have already attacked twice on different fronts,” he said.

According to Maj. Gen. Norkin, the F-35I stealth fighter did not participate in the last strike in Syria but did in two previous ones.

The Israeli military declared initial operational capability of the F-35I stealth fighter in December after receiving nine F-35I warplanes. The IAF is expected to receive a total of 50 jets to make two full squadrons by 2024.

Speaking at the IAF Senior Air Force Conference in Herzilya Norkin added that more than 100 surface-to-air missiles had been fired at Israeli jets from Syria during the May 10 incident.

Norkin also provided with additional details on the Israeli version of events. According to him, Iran fired 32 rockets at Israel during the flare-up across the Syrian border.Four rockets were allegedly intercepted by Israel and the rest landed outside of what he described as “Israeli territory”.

    Occupied Palestine is even more proud of mass murder than America is.

    As usual, the utter lies and bullshit spewing from ‘israeli’ Military Officials defies all logic, all reason and is beyond contempt.

      If you [disbelievers] seek victory – defeat will come to you. And if you desist [from hostilities], it is best for you; but if you return [to war], We will return, and never will you be availed by your [large] company at all, even if it should increase; and [that is] because Allah is with the believers. 8:19

          • christianblood

            ISIS or Al-Qaeda are indeed cowards, they use terror, suicide bombings and murder civilians en-mass. They can’t stand and fight but they only use terror and hide behind women and kids using as them human shields. They are indeed COWARDS!

        i agree that Allah is with the believer, that is why Allah has been with Syria-Hezbolah-Iran-Russia army from the beginning.

    • zman

      This a sales pitch to the US congress who are deciding whether to screw us some more over these piles of smoldering shit. US military/CONgrress doesn’t want them, except for those with vested interests. That would be those that are part of the revolving door, those that have factories in their state and those sucking on the MIL…teat. This is just Bibi’s holding up his part of the facade while they do the circle jerk. With Bibi’s help we’ll be saddled with more of these flying lemons. Enough is NEVER enough with these lying thieving fuckers.

      • Val Shadowhawk

        You know it!! It’s really infuriating!!

    • Nawaponrath

      One was shot at and damaged by S-200 that is why Israel is now buying Advance F-15 instead of more F-35

      • Val Shadowhawk

        Of which can be shot down. Hehe! The desperation of the so called ‘jewish State’ has reached its epoch. Now comes the proverbial reckoning….

        • Nawaponrath

          The Advance F-15E seems more survivable than the F-35 that is why Israel went with the decision after having tested the F-35 in combat therefore, the F-35 is lacking from my own resolution is stealth and speed

          • Val Shadowhawk

            Having relatives who served in the Military, I cam tell what I have ascertained by way of their own observations. That F15 is a flying piece of junk.

          • Nawaponrath

            Well if the F-15 is a flying JUNK hate to imagine what the F-35 is. At least it got the speed to run while the F-35 is a turkey shoot for the Russian jets

  • MADE MAKER

    ISRAEL is BOOSTING about ATTACKING SYRIA witch has not ATTACKED THEM the
    F-351 Fighters Can and Should be SHOOT DOWN

  • Michał Hunicz

    S-300 TO SYRIA RIGHT NOW!!!

    • Rob

      Without S-300 Syria and their allies will win this war from US, UK, France, KSA and Israeli migrants but on the cost of huge casualties. I mean many good and genius lives will be martyred but Israeli migrants will also loose their state.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      both S300-400 are already in Syria and around Syria in the sea. Now use your brain, no insult mean here and figure out why have not been used yet. Also understand why Russia take it ease in Syria and let the Syrians clean what mess left to be cleaned and take a look what is happening to Ukraine front. This will help you and maybe explain few blank spots for you if you manage to see the problem as global and in a peripheral manner rather than isolated to Syria.

      I can tell you IT IS WORTH to read it! And will make you feel a stone on your chest. It opens a look BEHIND the CURTAINS on the “Global Political Market”
      It’s almost as eyes-opening as the Aaron Russo interview ( given to Alex Jones Infowars, 12-13 years ago) about the Rockefeller Foundation and their Total-Control-Agenda

      • Dr. Pro Liv

        Suck-dick to Putin Kraut .
        While your Kraut NAZI-NATO soldiers are sitting on RUSSIAN BORDER again like in 1941.

    • Dr. Pro Liv

      And you are shouting creature from some NATO country…..
      And you soldiers are on RUSSIAN BORDER also….and you are full of it…just like so many people from NATO countries.

    • gustavo

      According to Israel reports, it looks like that birth can shut down an F-35.

      • velociraptor

        bird.
        and they can shoot down all types of planes. allegedly also the russian sukhoy falled in sea in latakia because of such accident.

  • Rob

    Israeli migrants are by birth thieves, stealing land from Palestinians and selling stollen gas of Palestine to Jordan. Israeli migrants also selling dates and other fruits of Palestinians to foreign countries. Same US, UK, France and KSA will also do. They will steal the middle east oil and gas and will sell to other countries.

  • Rob

    I don’t know who was the moron that advised these Israeli migrants to migrate to Palestine and take that land from Palestinians and that there you will be so happy and safe. This was a so much wrong advise.

    Now come and see each day these Israeli migrants butchering children, stealing their homes and land, eating from stolen land and selling from stollen land. Now every Israeli child that born in Palestine is by birth thief.

    • Trovak

      Adolf Hitler were one of them. He started the migration in as early as 1934. In agreement with Germanys zionist leaders.

    yeah, we stand off in lebanon and lob missiles. brave pilots that we are.

    what is amazing is that you got those things to fly in the 1st place.

    do let us know when you face an actual enemy won’t you?

  • Ligerten .Ligerten

    Blow them out of the sky!!! What happened to a Countries sovereign air space??!! Why are the Neo Fascist Israelis allowed to ignore International UN Laws & do what they want because they are Jews?? Big deal ! The Jews suffered in WW2 at the hands of the Nazis but does this give them the right to act the same as Hitler in the Middle East??? With the support of the Rouge Nation USA????!!!

    • velociraptor

      you can show, how!

  • chris chuba

    I’m glad that Putin says that Syria has all it needs to defend itself, the S-200 is enough.

    Russia will watch the SAA that it helped to rebuilt get cut to pieces from the air, all that work for nothing just because Putin won’t even let their next best air defense system go to the Syrians.

    • FlorianGeyer

      President Putin is playing the long game and he realises that any S300’s in Syrian hands today will give NATO an excuse to fully engage in Syria ,under the pretext of protecting Israel.

      This scenario would cause far more Syrian casualties.

      The Syrian response to illegal Israeli attacks , has now moved from ‘No Response’ to ‘Limited Response in the occupied Golan ‘. I would think that this strategy is agreed with Russia and Iran

      • velociraptor

        yes, suck putins cock, you idiot!

    • gustavo

      Pay attention, Russia does not want to give Syria S-300, but Russia will sell Trukey the S-400.
      Something strange is going on here.

  • northerntruthseeker .

    OK… Considering how truly horrific and abysmal the F35 really is, and how it is a detriment to every air force that deploys this flying POS lemon, I actually want to see these pricks out of Isra-hell use these lemons and have the Syrian air force laugh so loud as they blast them out of the sky!

    • velociraptor

      Bullshit! Using hunderds pf missiles the syrian air defence was able to hit 1-2 IL planes. From old F-xys. This is nothing, boy. Moreover, the IAF destroyed lot of syrian launchers. now will be much worse for sy air defence.

    Israel needs to clear out all Arab squatters from it’s land and to continue to teach the IRGC many more lessons in Syria they won’t soon forget.

    • Val Shadowhawk

      ‘israel’ needs to be fully dismantled and its creator overlords and officers arrested, tried and imprisoned for the remainder of their lives as war criminals.

    What a prize is must be having them fall out of the sky.
