Due to weather changes in Italy, the F-35 fighter jets that were supposed to arrive later today in Israel remain in Italian territory.
According to the IDF, security forces in both countries deemed it safer to wait until weather conditions improve in order to send the fighter jets to Israel as planned.

Therefore, the Israel Air Force ceremony that was scheduled for the early afternoon to celebrate the arrival of the aircrafts will be postponed as well.

Further developments are expected later in the day.
