The newest pair of Adir F-35Is arrived Sunday at Nevatim air base in southern Israel’s Negev desert from the United States.
The two stealth fighter jets have joined the Israel Air Force’s Golden Eagle Squadron in defending the fair skies of the State of Israel.
The F-35s arrived as a 10-day military exercise is taking place in various locations across the country. Three IDF elite special forces commando units are learning and upgrading their urban combat and open arena fighting skills in various scenarios that test their ability to transition and cooperate during a two-front battle.

The soldiers are being faced with conflict on the southern front with Hamas terrorists in Gaza, and on the northern front with Hezbollah guerrilla fighters as well.
