BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – For the second time in two days, the Israeli Air Force has conducted flights along the Syrian-Lebanese border, prompting the Syrian air defense forces to raise their security levels.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Israeli warplanes were likely conducting mock raids, but the flight path was similar to the one used to bomb western Damascus on several occasions in the past.

In addition to the flight along the Syrian-Lebanese border, the Israeli warplanes were also seen conducting low altitude flights and mock raids over the southern Lebanese cities of Nabatieh, Al-Arqoub, and Saida (var. Sidon).

The Israeli Air Force conducts overflights into Lebanon almost everyday and while the Lebanese government has repeatedly complained to the U.N. about these violations, little has been done to prevent these actions.

For many Lebanese, these Israeli overflights have become routine, with some of the warplanes often flying as far north as Beirut.

So, what, It it was spotted ….why on Earth Syria did not shut it down ? Does Syria think that the S-300 systems is just for decoration ? What ineptitude.

It’s as simple as this : they know that SAA is NOT IDF’s target and that Hezb and IRGC simply reap what they have sown. As long as SyADF don’t interfere in a business that is not theirs, they have nothing to fear from IDF, add to this, Hezb and IRGC are no more useful, if they ever were so. Another thing is simply that… It’s already estimated that Syria will need $400-500B to rebuild. Russia simply can’t do such a loan, China may, but… Considering the debt trap they’ve already put many nations in, in fact, Assad would get… Read more »

UNIFIL has just found another Hezbotox tunnel under the Israeli border.
IMHO, they’re sending a message to inhabitants since most of tunnels were started from civilians’ houses : better think twice before accepting such deals…
