BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) has been conducting several flights over the Quneira-Daraa axis these part 48 hours, a military source told Al-Masdar News this morning.
According to the source, the Syrian Air Force began flying close to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, yesterday, when they launched several airstrikes over the positions of Jaysh Khaled bin Walid (ISIS affiliate).
The source added that this morning, the Syrian Air Force conducted reconnaissance flights and airstrikes over this region of southwest Syria.
As Al-Masdar reported on Wednesday, the Syrian military has moved more air defense equipment to southwest Syria for precautionary purposes.
However, despite approaching the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and Jordanian border, the Syrian Air Force has not met any foreign interference so far.
The reason for this is likely due to the Russian Air Force presence over the southwestern region of Syria.
Another possible reason Israel has not interfered is due to a possible agreement that was established between the latter and Russia.
Prior to this offensive, the last time the Syrian Air Force conducted flights over this part of Al-Quneitra and Dara’a was in late 2014 – Israel would later down that aircraft after it approached the border of the occupied Golan Heights.
