UAE military Reported to Visit Israel to See F-35 July 7, 2018

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) military delegation is reported to have made a visit to Israel to see the US-made F-35 stealth fighter jets.

A military delegation from the UAE wanted to see the “performance” of F-35s.

Citing an unnamed official source, Israeli i24 news channel said that an American delegation was also present at the time of the UAE visit, without giving any date. In the same report, UAE is reportedly keen to get the US-made F-35 fighter jet.

In November 2015, Israel established a diplomatic mission in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, as part of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).

In May, Israel announced that it had used the F-35 in combat operations for the first time, after Israel struck at a number of Iranian military assets in Syria.
