BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – The Israeli Air Force carried out a number of sorties with the U.S. and British air forces this week, the Haaretz reported on Wednesday.

Citing the United Kingdom’s Permanent Joint Headquarters tweets on Tuesday, Haaretz reported that the F-35 units of the Israeli, U.S., and British air forces carried out joint sorties over both Iraq and Syria.

The British Royal Air Force’s F-35B stealth fighters recently arrived in Cyprus for a new combat mission against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in Syria and Iraq.

Six of the jets have been deployed at RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus since May for training exercises, in an operation known as Exercise Lightning Dawn.

As part of their training, the jets carried out 95 missions and flew in pairs for 225 hours, the British MoD said.

Prior to the arrival of the RAF’s F-35s, only the U.S. and Israeli air forces had used these new stealth fighters in combat inside Syria.

Terrorist coalition commanding Daesh (US, Israel, UK, France, NATO etc.) decides it is time to do some cleaning? Likely they try to wipe out some crucial evidence before it is found by Russians or SAA.

Daesh founder Zarqawi, when he left Afgha after 9-11, hid in an IRGC base in Iran before being smuggled into Iraq by IRGC/Quds-force in 2002 where he founded the Iraqi branch of al-Qaeda and named it “Islamic State”. He later did split from Ossama/Zawahiri… BTW, it is also PROVEN that Quds-Force helped 8 of the 9-11 Hijackers to enter the USA. Khamenei is very ecumenist when it comes to jihad, so is Hezbollah since Imad Mugniyeh personally trained Ossama and his close aides when these used to settle into genocidal al-Bashir’s Sudan. Start investigating by yourself if you don’t believe… Read more »

You need to improve your reading comprehension. The article discussed joint training missions over the Mediterranean, it said nothing of joint strikes over Syria, you are misleading your readers.

ISIS is not fighting the US or the Turkish Kurdish invaders and settlers in the Eastern Euphrates region. ISIS is embedded with and serves the Zio/NAZI invading and occupation forces in Syria against the Syrian government forces. Unless these foreign invaders do not leave Syria, there can never be a political solution to the Syrian conflict.

+++ “The British Royal Air Force’s F-35B stealth fighters recently arrived in Cyprus for a new combat mission against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in Syria and Iraq.” >>>> In fact, this is the official stance… Why AMN doesn’t relates what is happening around Cyprus? All this is a message… To Erdogan… Oh, BTW, Israel, maybe Cyprus, may enter NATO once Turkey will have been dumped. Once Libya fully under Haftar control, Libya, and also Egypt, are likely to either join NATO or enter an alliance/close partnership with NATO. Some states in the region not eager to imply in a genuine… Read more »
