U.S. AIR FORCE F-35S CARRY OUT FIRST COMBAT MISSION AGAINST ISIS TARGETS – The Israel Wire

The USAF said the two F-35As conducted air strikes with a Joint Direct Attack Munition against an Islamic State tunnel network and weapons cache in the Hamrin Mountains in Wadi Ashai, Iraq.“We have the ability to gather, fuse and pass so much information, that we make every friendly aircraft more survivable and lethal,” a USAF statement quoted 4th Fighter Squadron commander and F-35A pilot Lt. Col. Yosef Morris as saying. “That, combined with low-observable technology, allows us to really complement any combined force package and be ready to support AOR [Areas of Responsibility] contingencies.”
