BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:55 P.M.) – Israeli warplanes were seen flying along the Syrian-Lebanese border, today, prompting the Syrian Air Defense to raise their alert levels.

According to a source in Damascus, the Israeli warplanes had flown several times over the disputed Sheba’a Farms and Mount Herman (Jabal Sheikh) region before turning towards Lebanon’s Nabatiyeh Governorate.

The Israeli warplanes then flew several times over the southern Lebanese towns of Bint Jbeil, Nabatiyeh, and Marj’iyoun.

While it is not uncommon for Israel to violate Lebanese airspace, the recent conflict between the latter and Iran in Syria has left the Levant in a tense state.

Israel will attack Syria air defense system 100% sure. She is just waiting for the right moment. Syria must stop making warning to Israel, this is stupid.

Actually, Syria should tell Iran and Hezbo, and even SAA soldiers near the border that ANY provocation will be punished! Israel never acts without a reason, as long as nobody fucks with them, they’ll just do NOTHING! Air defences are needed in Afrin, not in Golan! It’s Khamenei and Nasrallah that’d better shot their mouthes instead of theatening Israel. Khamenei, as a head of state, even violates UN charter doing so!

Well, if it’s the same map of concessions ‘ve found, block 9 is in Cyprus EEZ (but is likely to have been attributed to Israeli coompany, thus making Nasrallah freaking jealous). Well, Bibi is no more threatening than saying “if xxx, then yyy” while some actors around (Humus, Hezbo) which are on foreign states payroll, have the Genocide of Jews clearly stipulated in their charter/manifesto… Khamenei and some IRGC brasses are also pretty loudmouthed about threatening total destruction… These guys are as stupid as Trump. All these crazy bigots hope is warring Israel and that it ends in WW3, thinking… Read more »

Don’t You read if I answer You? Then it is not worth to answer any more.

NO:
Cyprus block 9 is no where near Lebanon.

Cyrus block 9 is next to Lebanon block 8 outside the contested area and Lebanon block 9 is between Lebanon 8 and 10. In Lebanon economic zone.
