BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – For the first time since the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) launched “Operation Northern Shield”, their air force has been spotted along the Syrian-Lebanese border.
According to a military source in Damascus, Israeli warplanes were observed flying along the Syrian-Lebanese border this evening before they finally turned back towards Upper Galilee.
The military source said that the Israeli warplanes had entered Lebanon’s Nabatieh Governorate from Upper Galilee earlier today before they moved towards the Syrian border from the Beqa’a Valley.
The Israeli Air Force often takes this flight path when they bomb Syrian government installations inside the Homs and Damascus provinces.
However, it is worth noting, the Israeli Air Force does conduct a number of flights along the border to monitor the activity between Lebanon and Syria.
