Skip to comments.Lebanon Says Israeli Warplanes Flying Over the Country
Posted on 05/04/2013 3:15:29 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
The Lebanese army said on Friday that eight Israeli warplanes had flown over Lebanons airspace in a span of 14 hours, the Daily Star reported.
The report said that Israel sends reconnaissance jets and warplanes over Lebanon on almost a regular basis, but the air traffic in the last 24 hours has been unusually high.
At 7:10 p.m. Thursday, two Israeli warplanes violated Lebanese airspace entering above the sea west of Sidon and flying over all Lebanese areas as they conducted aerial maneuvers, an announcement from the Lebanese armys general directorate said, according to the Daily Star.
The planes left Lebanon's airspace approximately four hours later above Naqqoura.
Ten minutes before the departure of the first jet group, another two warplanes entered the airspace above the sea west of Jounieh and conducted aerial maneuvers across the country, the report said.
Those jets returned to Israel just after midnight above the southern village of Alma Shaab.
At 12:35 a.m. another sortie of two warplanes entered Lebanese airspace above the sea near Beirut, after which they conducted aerial maneuvers over the country before leaving at 3:15 a.m., according to the Lebanese Army.
At 6 a.m. two more warplanes violated the countrys airspace from above the sea near Beirut and flew over all Lebanese regions and left at 8:50 a.m. above the southern village of Rmeish, the Army said.

What is the purpose of the Lebanese in reporting this? If they can’t do anything about it reporting it makes them appear weaker than just pretending it isn’t happening. The people on the ground won’t know who the planes belong to. For the most part, unless the planes unleash death and destruction the people on the ground may not even know they’re there. What does Lebanon gain by giving a blow-by-blow of where they came from, where they went and how long they stayed?
Hey Lebanon. Suck it !
Abundant Blessings, Israel!
if you can’t defend your airspace, don’t whine when someone flies over it.
Dear Lebanon, are they bombing YOU?
Then STFU and quit sniveling.
2 dam bad
Good, but they really need to be flying over Iran.
Got carrier groups?
While Obama dithers and dawdles, a country that lives perpetually on the brink of total destruction acts on the courage of its convictions. Israel is real.
My guess is they will have to shoot down F-16s from Egypt some day.
These sound like ill-drays. Thanks Eleutheria5.

It is a bad luck to live without an airforce and with a mock army. So all the warplanes in your airspace are either Israely or Syrian.
