BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – For the second time this week, the Israeli Air Force has been spotted flying over the city of Beirut, with reports of medium-altitude flights above the southern suburbs of the Lebanese capital.

“The enemy Israeli warplanes, meanwhile, are flying in the sky over the capital, Beirut, in successive reconnaissance flights,” the National News Agency (NNA) of Lebanon reported this afternoon.

The agency said that “the hostile Israeli warplanes are also flying in the sky of Nabatieh and the villages and towns of Iqlim al-Tuffah at medium altitude.”

“Israeli warplanes overflew the Hasbaya, Arqoub, Jabal al-Sheikh, Shabaa Farms and the occupied Golan at low altitude.”

Also, Israeli warplanes flew over villages and towns near Marjeyoun.

Earlier this week, the Israeli Air Force conducted nonstop flights over Lebanon, prompting the Lebanese government to issue a complaint to the UNIFIL forces inside the country.

Despite Lebanon’s complaints, however, the UNIFIL forces have been unable to halt the constant Israeli airspace violations.

On Wednesday, an Israeli drone carried out an attack on a vehicle that was traveling along the Lebanese-Syrian border.

While no one was hurt during the attack, reports said the vehicle was destroyed.

Where is Iran’s version of the Russian S-400 and S-500? Iran should install its most up-to-date air defense and air denial systems all over Lebanon and all over Syria ASAP so that these zionist-mafia warplanes and drones can be destroyed immediately and Iran can finally impose a no-fly zone over all of Occupied Palestine from sea to sea to sea.

Nah man, that’s exactly what the IDF wants, and hence will never happen this way, short of a new total war between Hezb and the Israelis. Giving away operating frequencies and general specs to an enemy in low intensity warfare is a free giveaway that no sane military brass would ever allow. Such an act would be exploited massively by US/Israeli joint SIGINT crews and hardware, if not outright targeted and destroyed upon unloading, Syria style (even though those are unsubstantiated rumors from zionist outlets, the possibility in Lebanon would be quite real). Plus, considering that the state of Lebanon… Read more »

Iran has no domestic version of S-300/400, even less of S-500 which is brand new and won’t be exported for at least the next 10-20 years. Their Bavar-373 uses the Sayyad-4 missile, the latest iteration of the Sayyad “family”, Sayyad-1 having been built as a reverse-engineered version of US RIM-66A Standard-Missile (SM-1) delivered to the Shah’s navy. RIM-66A was introduced in 1967. RIM-66A : Sayyad-2 : Sayyad-4 has been stretched in order to offer a longer range. BTW, in case you wouldn’t know, the big 48N6 or 40N6 in S-300/400 batteries have the same purpose as the old S-200 :… Read more »

Ofcourse they do. This is exactly what the Germans did in WW2 with the Russians. Only after two years of war, the Russians were prepared for it…
