BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – The Israeli Air Force has been flying low altitude flights along the Syrian border this morning, prompting the Syrian air defense units to raise their alert levels in Damascus.

According to a source in Damascus, the Israeli warplanes were spotted over the Jabal Al-Sheikh (Mount Hermon) region of eastern Lebanon, which is where they usually enter when they bomb southwestern Syria.

These border flights by the Israeli Air Force come just a week after they heavily bombarded Syria’s Aleppo Governorate.

The Israeli Air Force bombed several areas in the Aleppo Governorate last Wednesday, causing considerable damage to the Sheikh Najjar District and Nayrab Airbase.

In addition to their Syrian border flight, the Israeli Air Force was also spotted flying over several other areas in southern Lebanon this morning, including the Nabatieh and South governorates.

The Nabatieh Governorate is where Hezbollah is believed to have its largest presence in Lebanon and the South Governorate is home to several Palestinian factions around the coastal city of Saida (Sidon).

Some UN intervention is required Israeli continuously violating sovereign Lebanese airspace for illegal offences in Syria? Or is there a secret deal?

Syria + Lebanon violate UNSC Res.1701 by allowing weapons transfers to Hezbollocks, UNIFIL does nothing, no problem, any UN state is entitled at enforcing binding UNSC resolutions.

Syria can be happy Israel don’t uses these actions or any shelling into their territory, and there were many, to resume the Yom Kippur war and invade Syria. If I was ’em, I’d do a Kim Il Sung

with 3,000x 155mm Howitzers with Damascus into range. Should have done this in 1967, so Syria wouldn’t had followed Egypt in 1973 : Hafez would have shat in his pants

And in the end, only Golda and Dayan shat theirs. While also crying a river to Kissinger until the guy finally decided to trigger existentially needed airlift of the century to save Israel from a total debacle. If it wasn’t for Saddat’s betrayal, Egyptian and Syrian tanks would be rolling in Tel-Aviv’s suburbs in less than a week from the invasion’s Zero Hours, and Arien Sharon’s brigade would have been shattered by half a dozen Egyptian air squadron that got a last-minute no-go from this traitor when he sealed his new alliance with Washington and dropped both the Soviets and… Read more »

Close to 2500 combined Syrian SRBMs, MRBMs, Howitzers and MRLS in range of anything Israel has in its surface, up that number another 1000 when it comes to the Golan alone. All waiting for a greenlight the day Israel finally gives them an internationally valid reason to act without fearing a coalition against it via NATO/Europe. And one for Moscow to go it all in for total military integration, Belarus style. It takes two to tango. If Israel declare and walks the invasion route, so will Syria, and it won’t be alone in this. So keep on praying your Jewish… Read more »

I do hope that Bibi and his mates finally make that gigantic mistake and create the rights conditions for a hard takeover of the Golan once and for all. To convince every single Arab soul into finally mobilizing globally against the common foe again ’73 style there is a critical need for a strong, nationwide action from Tel-Aviv to demonstrate its full intend without any level of ambiguity for all to witness around. So far, they have been smart and have done nothing more of a dirty job than an endless series of somewhat visually impressive but militarily nothing more… Read more »

Again Israel constantly violates UN resolutions so whats the problem with Lebanon doing the same? You seem to make out that Israel is a angel when it comes to UN resolutions and International law but history has shown this is not the case at all. You seem to dismiss that Israel is a constant violator and its ok to do this but no one else is allowed to break the law so to speak and any commenter who suggests this you rebuff them by quoting UN resolutions. How about pointing out Israel’s long rap sheet of violations. Israel IS THE… Read more »

There whole existence was contingent on rules they failed to follow. Legally they broke the very agreement that allowed them to form

@Luke, very well put, I couldn’t do it better myself, and the man is a joke. But I advise you not to waste your time with him : he is a paid troll. I am not exaggerating. If in doubt about his true goals when it comes to objective facts have a look at his long and ongoing record of constant misinformation he posts and repeats sometimes in copy pastes in every single page, and sometimes in one and the same article on this site for at least a year. He rarely ever bothers to answer anymore to anyone pointing… Read more »

It’d be illegal under international law, see UNSC Res.1701. Any way, Syria has S-300 and can do nothing. Hezb are lucky Israelis are very pacifists : in their place, we’d
