BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 P.M.) – The Syrian military has been placed on high alert this evening after Israeli warplanes were spotted flying incredibly close to the Syrian-Lebanese border.

According to reports, the Israeli warplanes made their way from Lebanon’s Nabatieh Governorate to the Beqa’a Valley, where they flew close to the northwestern part of the Rif Dimashq Governorate of Syria.

Lebanon’s National News Agency has also reported a heavy Israeli air presence over the Nabatieh Governorate.

The Israeli warplanes have not crossed over into Syrian territory; however, this is believed to be their closest approach to Syria since Damascus received the S-300 Air Defense System from the Russian Federation.

In the past, the Israeli Air Force has used this route from Lebanon to bomb western Syria; however, they also fly over this area to monitor the border movements.

It is a complete travesty that Lebanon has no ability to protect it’s airspace! Their airspace should be under Syrian and Russian supervision! And Isfakel should be under constant international sanctions for violating Lebanese airspace.

Their country is already an Iranian puppet state, thanks to Syria having let them smuggling heavy weapons to Hezb which blackmails the state.

Since the Lebanese state refuses to enforce UNSC res.1701= disarming Hezb, any UN state has the right to chase Hezb weapons depots wherever they are!

Added to this that drug trafficking and money laundering are covered up by Lebanon as is the fact that this terrorist group is allowed to perdure here, it’s Lebanon that may end under international sanctions.

Arabs said they would push Jews into the sea in June 1967. Jews kicked Arabs asses in just six days of war. Israel is here to stay, I don’t know about Lebanon, Syria and Iran.

Considering that the S-300 batteries are protected from cruise missiles by Pantsir and Pantsir is not so relevant…

@DsSx, True enough. But once provoked they can intercept all starts and landings in Israel.

Modern-day Zionist IsraHell is NOT the IsraHell of the Bible, because it is comprised of converted Jews and not of Hebrews with whom God had the Old Covenant.
Its very existence causes ramifications that negatively affect not only the Middle East but the West as well, especially the United States….

BS. God has a Covenant with all that believe in him. Else all Muslims and Christians had none.

Nice try but it was the Arabs who are calling for “Death to Israel” and “Death to America”.

Nope, your masters in Tehran believe they can destroy Israel and that they will rule the world by the grace of their allah. Wherever there is trouble, you find either IRGC or Hezb and in parallel, some Muslim-Brotherhood offshoot.

In fact, Iran and the MB work as a push-pull you’d find in an audio amplifier.
If 1 transistor or vacuum tube gives 10W, having two in push-pull will give 60-70W

Wherever they spread their “jihad”, no matter if Shia or Sunni fuelled, you’ll ONLY find death and destruction.

Russia sent Syria S-300 and you are so sure they can stop IAF from attacking Syria. What if it will turn out to be another Bekaa Valley Turkey Shoot?
