Prime Minister and Defense Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this morning (Tuesday, 9 July 2019), at the Nevatim Air Force base, visited the F-35 squadron and held a security discussion with IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi, GOC Air Force Maj.-Gen. Amikam Norkin and the forum of air force commanders.
Prime Minister Netanyahu:
“I am on an impressive tour of the air force base. I see all of our weapons systems and planes. Here behind me is the ‘Adir’, the F-35. Recently, Iran has been threatening the destruction of Israel. It would do well to remember that these planes can reach anywhere in the Middle East, including Iran and certainly Syria.“
