BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The Syrian military has been placed on high alert this evening after Israeli warplanes were spotted along the Lebanon-Syria border.
According to a military source in Damascus, Israeli warplanes were once again spotted along the Lebanon-Syria border at night, prompting the Syrian military to prepare their air defenses for a possible breach.
The Israeli warplanes reportedly entered Lebanon from the Nabatieh Governorate before making their way to the Jabal Sheikh (Mount Hermon) region along the Syrian border.
The source added that the Syrian military believes the Israeli Air Force is attempting to provoke them into responding to their close border flights.
In the past, the Israeli Air Force has taken this flight path to bomb targets inside of Damascus and its countryside.
