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.
