Hangars are being built urgently throughout Israel, presumably to house the last F-35 (“Adir”) fighters of Israel’s 5th generation, which withstand all the inclement weather.
The project is being carried out by the United States Department of Defense. The hangars under construction will have a total area of 252,000 square meters, writes the Israeli medium Israel Defense, specializing in military issues.
According to journalists, the work is being done by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (NAU). Israeli officials have not commented on it.
Israel currently hosts the international Blue Flag air exercise. A total of 1,000 people, including pilots from the United States, Germany, Italy and Greece, participate in the maneuvers.
The new Adir fighters from Israel are also being used in the drills.
The Israeli Air Force commander, Amikam Norkin, recently said that Israel is the first country that has used F-35 fighters in real combat conditions when attacking targets in “Middle East countries.”
According to Arab press reports, Israel has used Adir fighter jets in airstrikes against facilities in Syria and Iraq.
