BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – For the second time this week, the Israeli Air Force has conducted low altitude flights along the Syrian-Lebanese border.

According to a military communique from the Syrian Armed Forces, the Israeli warplanes began their cross-border flights by entering Lebanon’s Nabatieh Governorate and making their way to the Beqa’a-Damascus border.

The Israeli warplanes did not cross into Syrian airspace; however, their flight along the border was enough to raise the alert levels in Damascus.

Typically, Israel takes this flight path when they carry out airstrikes in western Damascus and western Homs, so any time their planes are spotted along the border, the Syrian military prepares their air defenses for a potential engagement.

Low altitude fly near Syria border without any Syria answer looks like bad news for Syria defense capabilities……this is something Syria must worry about. This means that low altitude attack to Syria is possible.

Altitude must not have been so low, since when you fly REALLY low, only AWACS can detect you, eventually some giant trans horizon radars like the French Nostradamus or the Russian Kontainer, but such facilities are ultra-rare and there are not a single having been built in the MENA. Even the Russian doesn’t export such gear, not even to their biggest client (India).
