Is the Israeli Air Force Losing Its Edge?
Israel has been bombing targets within Syria with impunity since the country descended into a hellish civil war in 2011.

It has taken its aerial superiority for granted and built its strategy on it. That made the events of Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018, all the more shocking for Israel.
