Two Israeli F-35 fighter jets entered Iranian airspace over the past month, Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida reported on Thursday. The act is a signal of heightened regional tensions, especially in light of recent Israeli military attacks in Syria, including against Iranian bases in the country.
Sources quoted in Al-Jarida stated that two stealth fighters flew over Syrian and Iraqi airspace to reach Iran, and even targeted locations in the Iranian cities Bandar Abbas, Esfahan and Shiraz.

On the flip side....
There are some odd bits in the original story run by the Kuwaitis and picked up by the Jerusalem Post.

I think you nail it in the first part (though CENTCOM would be aware and conceivably could be a source).
Still think it's happening.
Yep, that's the second thought. Could the F-35 also get through Syria, Iraq and into Iran without the U.S detecting it? I doubt it. Would Israel even chance it without IFF clearance-just like back in Saddam's days-. I think not.
I actually thought that the F-22 placement in the UAE acted as a block to any Israeli move against Iran as well as an intimidation to Iran
