IAF F-15s accompany American B-52 through Israeli airspace in show of force against Iran

Israeli F-15 fighter jets escort two American B-52 heavy bombers through Israeli airspace, as part of an ongoing show of force by the United States aimed at Iran.

In recent months, B-52 bombers have repeatedly flown through the Middle East amid concerns that Tehran may launch a large strike against US forces in the region or against Israel.

“This flight is another testament to the strategic cooperation with American forces, which is a cornerstone in the preservation of the security of the airspace of the State of Israel and the Middle East,” the Israel Defense Forces says in a statement.
