Israel and USAF hold joint F-35 drill
- April 1, 2020
Israeli Air Force and US Air Force have held joint F-35 drill in southern Israel on March 29.
The Israel Defense Forces said that the drill was permitted to take place, despite a general ban on international exercises during the coronavirus crisis, because it will be held solely in the air, with no person-to-person contact on the ground.
“In the exercise, which was held in southern Israel, the Israeli and fifth-generation, advanced F-35 fighter jets simulated scenarios in which they had to deal with both aerial threats and varying strategic threats from the ground,” IDF said.
