On October 30, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) announced that its fighters jets escorted an American B-1B supersonic strategic heavy bomber over Israel on its way to the Persian Gulf.

“The joint flight illustrates the continued strategic cooperation of the Israel Defense Forces with the United States in the area,” the Israeli military said on Twitter.

The American bomber was escorted by F-15 fighter jets of the IAF 133 Squadron, the “Knights of The Twin Tail”. The Israeli fighter jets were armed with AIM-7 Sparrow medium-range semi-active radar homing and Python-5 short-range infrared homing air-to-air missiles during the mission.

The Israeli military released several photos and video footage of the unusual escort flight that was an apparent threat to Iran.

The B-1B, which has a range of 7,600 km with a load of 16,800 kg, can carry heavy bunker-buster bombs that would be needed for a strike on Iran’s largely underground nuclear facilities. The bomber can also deliver nuclear armed bombs and cruise missile.

The joint American-Israeli mission was likely meant as a warning to Iran, which will rejoin the talks on its nuclear program next November. While Washington seeks a political solution that would see a return to the 2015 nuclear deal, Tel Aviv continues to threaten Tehran with a military strike.

IAF currently operate with cowardly doctrine – they hide behind Lebanese commercial air traffic to attack Syria. This is actively reckless and selfish act by all regulated international aviation standards. No modern professional military that systematically uses third party human shields as part of its core tactical doctrine is respected.

Practice for what blowing kids up?

Jnoub

I hope they get in Iran’s range so we can watch those fags fall into the ocean

Why so mad? you said you’re a Lebanese.
Our pilots have very special gifts for you down there in South Lebanon, just give them a reason.
P.S who am I kidding? you are a failed state and you don’t even have money for a toilet paper let alone a war against Israel. Maybe it’s good for you, you get to live another day in your stinky village.

Jnoub

Funny because your pilots failed in 2006. Those faggots couldn’t even destroy 10% of Hezbollah rockets in the last war. Your jets can’t even handle a s200 in Syria, you think you’ll be able to handle Hezbollah air defence?
The next war, israel will die out, every Jew will run back to their true homeland which is Europe. Your country has no strategic depth and they depend on America. America won’t be able to get to Israel so easily when 200k+ Shia Iraqi soldiers in militias loyal Iran and Hezbollah.

Iron_Zion

I don’t get it, is that some kind of an Arab Ali Baba fantasy of yours? in 2006 we only used 5% of our firepower against you and only 10,000 troops had enetered while 30,000 were waiting to enter and to slaughter you. Your only luck was that the U.N forced a ceasefire on us otherwise we would have destroyed Beirut completely to the ground and our pilots did a great job but in the end it’s guys like us who come in and hunted you down door to door.

Next war you know what will happen? it’s very simple, every Shia in the south will either flee north or get vaporized with such a firepower you have not seen before. We went easy on you the last time and showed you mercy, don’t provoke us too much because you will regret it.

israel can finish you off in 2 days if we decide, with hundreds of thousands of dead Lebanese. But our big boss in Washington prevents it, so you need to thank him for saving your ass.

למה לבזבז אותם בניסיון לכבוש את עזה ודרום לבנון כאשר החלק הדרומי של הגדה המערבית מכוסה אתרי הובי עתיקים.
i hope i got it right

Iron_Zion

Hey LR, yeah you kinda got it xD
The West Bank has nothing to do with it, unless they start riots which I don’t see happening. Gaza is mostly ruined after the last operation so Hamas will not join any conflict anytime soon as I predict. Only Hezbollah is left alone and they are not a match for us, they can hurt our civilians but in the end we will get in and hunt them down and their families and every Lebanese knows we can do it.

So they mostly bark, nothing more.

Jnoub

Not match? https://www.shiatv.net/video/2049924062
Watch how Israel sucking up to Hezbollah.

Lunarcaptain

I hope your new top brass has some balls this time. While I am sure that IDF can wipe out Hezbollah and full assault is not way to do so. But I’m not an IDF commander.

But i do know the that over 3000 -4500 IDF members will loose their lives. another 4000-4500 will be WIA. (yes i know you will disagree, but you’re the spec ops i hold you to higher standard to training.) I can give you break down of where most the losses will be sustained and why if you want.

wars are won through blood good tactics and just reduce the cost.

Jnoub

IDF won’t be able to wipe out Hezbollah. IDF had to call in all reserves to invade Lebanon. This time Radwan Unit of Hezbollah will invade through Golan heights, Israel Special force will be alone trying to invade Lebanon.

Basement Dweller Slayer

Hezbollah cannot do it alone. For sure.

Jnoub

Yes they can, they did it in 2006. Hezbollah has enough missiles to disable IAF and airports

Lunarcaptain

ever heard the term pyric victory

Jnoub

But it wouldn’t happen. The UN came in after Israel and america begged them. They lost to much, but did so little to Hezbollah, thats a pyric victory

Jnoub

The reason why Israel called in an ground invasion, is because their Air Force failed. Plan A for Israel: destroy Hezbollah and south Lebanon through the air. Israel failed Plan A, Pentagon said they were only able to destroy 7% of Hezbollah rockets in 3 days. So they had to call in an invasion to stop Hezbollah which also failed. Hezbollah on the last day of the war sent a total of 246 rockets into Israel. That’s the most anyone has sent into Israel, and this was the last day of the war. Hezbollah was able to send in the most rockets out of any day of the month long war in the last day. This shows Hezbollah was capable for longer conflict.

Jnoub

Israel failed their ground invasion. Israeli reserve troops arrived at the front without the necessary equipment, without a coherent battle plan, and without the munitions necessary to carry on the fight. Israel failed to invade successfully with their special forces, so they had to bring in their rookies without proper equipment for assistance. On the 21st, the White House received a request from Olmert and the IDF for the provision of large amounts of precision-guided munitions. Now how can a nuclear power still need assistance from another nuclear power against a militia using old Russian and Chinese technology?

Israel also failed to conquer Lebanese villages, and get back their soldier who were prisoners.

You brought up how the UN saved us, but they saved you guys. Israel couldn’t even clear up the Litani river for the UN peacekeepers safety, this shows Israel couldn’t even control how the war in their favour. Israel wasn’t going to flatten Beirut, their airforce failed to take our Hezbollah rockets, how were they going to be able to flatten us out?

Jnoub

You also brought up the point how you guys were going easy, but that’s the complete opposite. You guys launched a full-scale attack on us including your Airforce, Navy and infantry which all failed in their own ways. That munitions request to the pentagon was because Israel wasted all its ammo on Hezbollah not even 2 week into the war, on the other hand Hezbollah completely fine.

Jnoub

Next war will end israel. Israel airforce won’t beat Hezbollah. Hezbollah will flatten your airports making your airforce useless. And Washington is saving your guys by not letting you embarrass yourselves. Hezbollah has battle hardened soldiers who’s won against Guerrilla style and against superpowers. Israel think their drills they do will save you? Israel problem is they’re underestimating Hezbollah.

Basement Dweller Slayer

Hezbollah defeated superpowers? ISIS is superpower?

Jnoub

Hezbollah defeated Israel in 2006. And the Lebanese Islamic Jihad made America leave Lebanon after one bombing.

Cromwell

LOL!! what a funny guy you are.

While you pretend to be from ziostan, your paid monkey ass is from the west, america or canada.

Arrogant inbred terrorist swine.

An easy target for the S-400 missile defense system. 1300 KM top speed? Even that figure is likely a deception. What a fkn joke.

The Russian Tu-160 has a maximum speed of 2200 KM and exceeds the american design in all parameters.
