Israel Confirms F-35 Operational Use

Israel has used its F-35s in combat in the Middle East.

Israeli Major-General Amikam Norkin, who commands the Air Force, confirmed this week that Israel has used its F-35s operationally.
He reportedly displayed a photo of an F-35 over Beirut, which would indicate that at least some of the missions the F-35 has been involved in pertained to Syria.

The F-35s -- dubbed F-35I 'Adir' in Israeli service -- began arriving to the country in December 2016 and four batches have been received so far. Israel declared the first jets operational in December 2017.
