    Eight F-16C/D Sufa's of 101sq and 105sq of the Heyl Ha'Avir (IAF, Israel Air Force) that were parked in their underground hangars were damaged in a heavy rainstorm last week.
    Three jets suffered serious damaged while five others were slightly effected when the hangars suddenly flooded at the Hatzor air base (Israel).

    Israelis haven't got anything to worry about, they have been spoon fed billions $$$ since their inception by America, Britain and France. These countries are wholly owned and controlled by Zionists, that have been feeding on them like parasitic cancer. The illegal, illegitimate, criminal, fascist state of israel will be getting all their shiny new F-35s, free of charge, soon. That's one country that has zero right to b!tch n moan about anything, yet it moans like a b!tch every day.

    The recent rains in the Middle East is something of a phenomenon, countries like Bangladesh suffer much worse during floods and cyclones.

    IDFAF F-16s damaged after flooding at Hatzor airbase

    January 13, 2020 (by Asif Shamim) -
    Eight F-16 jets were damaged last week as heavy rains flooded their under ground 'datak' hangars at Hatzor AB, the military acknowledged Sunday, following attempts to have the information censored.

    Officials acknowledged that mistake had been made by not removing the jets when the flooding had started on Thursday. 50 million liters of rain fell on the base between 05:00hrs. and 05:30hrs.

    According to the Air Force, five F-16s sustained lightly damage while another three were more seriously affected. Estimates have the costs running in the tens of millions of shekels to complete repairs.

    Initial reports were suppressed by the military, but photos have been seen on social media showing the flooding. Initial attempts to suppress were claimed as a security matter drew criticism as it was deemed a coverup and an embarrassment for not preventing the incident.

    The flooding occurred as heavy rains lashed Israel on Thursday, causing widespread flooding in several cities. Authorities have faced criticism over inadequate drainage infrastructure do deal with the rains at Hatzor AB which is close to two rivers.

    Channel 12 news also reported that several mechanics needed to be rescued from the flooded hangars when waters reached more than one and a half meters (4.5 feet) in depth.
