"We will not let Iran establish military bases in Syria and we will not let Iran develop nuclear weapons", Xinhua quoted Netanyahu as saying.

Tel Aviv, Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that Israel is determined to roll back Iran's aggression at the Tel-Nof Air Base during the second day of the worldwide convention for air force commanders. Other claims say Israeli forces were responsible for the strikes, which took place weeks after U.S., French and British warplanes struck several suspected chemical weapons facilities near the Syrian capital of.

The combination of the successful attacks in Syria against Iranian targets, the defeat of the uprising on the Gaza border and the support of the USA administration is inducing an exaggerated sense of confidence among Israel's leaders, which is morphing into boastfulness.

In February, Israel was furious when the Syrian military hit at least one intruding Israeli F-16 warplane that attacked positions inside Syrian territory, sending it down in flames.

On Tuesday, The Times of Israel noted that some observers in the Hebrew-language media suggested Mr. Netanyahu's decision to relocate his security cabinet meetings to the underground bunker could point to preparations for a possible escalation of hostilities with Iran.

The training of the first Israeli F-35 pilots began in July 2016, at Luke air base in Arizona.


One of the outstanding features of the Adir F-35I is its ability to operate undetected deep inside enemy territory, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The fifth generation F-35 stealth fighter, of which Israel now has a fleet of nine, is considered one of the most advanced aircrafts in the world, capable of operating virtually undetected by air defenses.

Lockheed Martin International Executive Vice President Rick Edwards said, "We aren't building this aircraft for a fair fight, but to give our customer a decisive advantage". There were several problems with the rumor. most obviously that if Iran can not to detect the F-35 then it would be unlikely to know it was being overflown.

Israel has reportedly received delivery of nine F-35s, out of a total of 50 on order.

The Lockheed Martin F-35 is considered to be the most technologically advanced fighter in the world. Israel's Iron Dome anti-missile batteries destroyed four of the rockets and the rest exploded inside Syria, he said.
