F-35 fighters intercepted near Khmeimim airbase could be Israeli

The F-35 fighters that appeared near the Khmeimim airbase could have been Israeli.

A few days ago, the news agency Avia.pro, citing Baijiahao, reported that two American fifth-generation F-35 fighters had been intercepted near the Khmeimim airbase in Syria. According to the data provided, the F-35 fighters tried to violate the airspace of Syria, however, were promptly intercepted by the fighters of the Russian Aerospace Forces. Despite the absence of official comments from the command of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria, there was evidence that we are talking about Israeli combat aircraft.

According to analysts, the version that the F-35 fighters that appeared near the Khmeimim airbase were lifted from the deck of the British aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth is not true, since at that time the aircraft carrier was far beyond the flight range of such fighters. The most likely version is that we are talking about Israeli F-35 fighters, which could check the readiness of a breakthrough through the airspace controlled by Russian air defense and aerospace forces, as well as check the Syrian S-300 for readiness to respond to stealth fighters.

It should be noted that over the last month, the Russian Aerospace Forces literally staged a raid on American fifth-generation fighters, repeatedly intercepting them with Su-30, Su-35 and Su-27 fighters, demonstrating the latter's complete air superiority.

It would be better if Russia showed its superiority in the economy. For Russians, this would be the best indicator.
