|Six Israeli F-35 stealth fighters landed in Italy last week to take part in a two-week air exercise in Italy with its air force, alongside those of the United States and United Kingdom, in the largest and farthest drill that the aircraft have taken part in to date, the military said Sunday.
Iran is in our focus, the senior officer said, speaking to reporters on condition of anonymity.
The British aircraft carrier the HMS Queen Elizabeth will also be used during the exercise, which will be held both over Italian territory and the Mediterranean Sea.
