On Monday morning, the Israeli Air Force violated Lebanese airspace; flying 2 jets over the Tyre Governorate districts of Alma Al-Sha’ab and Naqoura. The Israeli aircrafts were identified by the Lebanese Air Defense, who monitored the movement of these airplanes until they crossed back into Israel. According to a source, the Lebanese Military Intelligence believes they were flying reconnaissance flights over the Palestinian Camps in southern Lebanon.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has prolonged the execution of the 7 Lebanese soldiers, pending the recent sentence change for their 5 imprisoned comrades at Roumieh Prison. ISIS has requested the release of all 5 members of the Fatah Al-Islam that were sentenced to be executed last Friday; however, the Lebanese Judicial Council lessened their sentencing in order to give ISIS incentives to avoid executing the 7 Lebanese soldiers in their captivity. 27 members of the Lebanese Army and security forces were taken prisoner in August – 3 have been executed and 7 have been released.
In the Ba’albak Governorate, the Lebanese Army conducted a series of raids that targeted Jabhat Al-Nusra camps in east Lebanon. According to a military source, 4 Syrian men affiliated with Jabhat Al-Nusra were arrested – the source also added that multiple weapons and ammunition were confiscated during the raids.
