Israeli Air Force flies over Lebanese-Syrian border – first time in 3 months

The Israeli Air Force made several passes over the Lebanese-Syrian border on Sunday, Dec. 16, for the first time since the crisis with Moscow erupted in September, DEBKAfile’s military sources report. The flights passed over northern and central Lebanon, although in the past Israeli jets stayed close to the south.

The Russians are conducting an air and sea exercise opposite Syria’s west coast, for which the eastern Mediterranean was placed off-limits. Although the Israeli aircraft stayed clear of this closed area, the distances were small enough to indicate that the IDF must have cleared the flight paths with HQ at the Russian Air Base at Khmeimim near Latakia, which is managing the exercise.
This means that Israel-Russian air force liaison, suspended after the downing of a Russian IL-20, may be up and running again. Just five days ago, a senior Israeli military delegation, led by Maj. Gen. Avraham Haliva, head of the IDF Operations Directorate, spent 24 hours in Moscow in talks with high-ranking Russian officers at the defense ministry and general command. The Russians said in a short statement that the IDF delegation had briefed them on Israeli’s operation against Hizballah tunnels and discussed coordination with the Russian command in Syria. No statement came from Israel on the visit. However, the renewed Israeli flights over Lebanon indicates that some measure of understanding was reached.

The IAF’s freedom to fly over all parts of Lebanon is now an active component of the IDF’s capacity to deal with Hizballah in the event of a flare-up of hostilities in the course of Operation Northern Shield against its cross-border tunnels. With the prospects fast diminishing of UNIFIL or the Lebanese army undertaking to blow up or seal the tunnels at the Lebanese end, one of the IDF’s options may be to bomb them from the air.

Syria and Hizballah are acting to spike this option with propaganda. Syrian sources have reported that Moscow warned Israel, including the visiting generals, that Russian officers have been stationed at Syrian missile batteries and air bases and if they should come to harm, the Russians would hit back. Another tale asserts that Russian flags have been hoisted over Hizballah bases in Syria.

      No, it’s actually Debka that is giving too much importance to the Russian military in Syria.

      Israel did not coordinate to get Russian permission; Israel unilaterally put its aircraft where its own national security dictates that they operate at the moment. The Russians can go pound sand.

    Dissuasion bombing for the infamy of war-attack tunnels of the Lebanon state is to be done with restrain and proportionality. A maximum of 1 week bombing of Beirut , highways, and industrial facilities, for each tunnel discovered by IDF should be satisfactory for the beginning.

    But, one shall not forget the Iranian Embassy and the Mudeirej Bridge on the highway Beirut-Damascus, these are also good eligible targets.

        UN has failed to cover the pearlharborian infamy of the Lebanon state in preparing war-attack tunnels. Of course UN has for Tunifil an Italian general! After all, aren’t macaronis miniature tunnels? Isn’t the ketchup likely enough to the Israelis blood UN was planning to exact?

        UN has sent Tunifil for filling with tunnels all Lebanon state borders, but they triple failed. They failed to denounce the years long digging of tunnels. They failed to denounce the existence of the tunnels. And they failed to condemn the tunnels and the planned Lebanon state attack. Why? Because hyenas don’t eat hyenas, and thieves do not cry thief when witnessing a theft, perhaps?

        I say there is no organization more abominable, disgusting, execrable, hateful, and offensive than UN, and it will be alleged gross fabrication to affirm other ways.

          On this day: 26 May 2000

          2000: Hezbollah celebrates Israeli retreat
          The Hezbollah leader, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, has been greeted by tens of thousands of supporters during a victory rally to celebrate the Israeli withdrawal from South Lebanon.

          He said disputed land and prisoners still held by Israel should be returned to Lebanon – but made no reference to achieving it through combat.

          His speech followed a statement from Hezbollah – which fought to drive the Israeli army out of Lebanon – that its fighters will soon pull out of southern Lebanon, now that the Israelis have withdrawn.

          Earlier, United Nations peacekeepers equipped with armoured cars began patrolling the former Israeli-controlled zone in Lebanon.

          The UN special envoy, Terje Roed-Larsen, said they would be deployed in permanent positions up to the Israeli border after the organisation had verified full Israeli withdrawal.

          The Lebanese Government has also deployed about 600 armed police officers in the newly-evacuated area.

          But Beirut refused to send in the army saying it prefers to wait for official confirmation of Israel’s pullout.

          In the victory rally at Bint Jbeil, near the border with Israel, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah prayed to God “that the victory be fulfilled with the liberation of the whole territory and the release of all prisoners”.

          He was referring to an area known as the farms of Shebaa on Lebanon’s borders with Syria but occupied by Israel since 1967.

          “I promise you that every prisoner will soon be returned and the farms of Shebaa will return to Lebanon,” he told the crowd.

          Sheikh Nasrallah said Israel had no alternative, saying that Hezbollah “considers that all occupied Lebanese territory must be restored”.

          But the Shia Muslim leader did not speak about the consequences if Israel refrained.

          The Hezbollah leader has also called for a severe punishment of those who “collaborated” with Israel during its years of occupation.

          A total of 1,500 members of the militia have given themselves up to the authorities or to Hezbollah.

          Collaboration can carry the death sentence in Lebanon.

            Sheba Farms is controlled by Israel.

    @ “Trump is the new prophet”,

    Yes, their ancestors were indeed converts to Judaism and that happened around 3000 years ago in the land which is now called Israel. The DNA proves that European Jews originated from the Middle East and the archaeology as well as written documentation which has survived to this day clearly indicates who the rightful owners of that land are………………..the so-called “Palestinians” are descended from Arab invaders of that land during the later Muslim conquests.

    The Russians have not changed since the time of the Czars and with their new Czar Putin he has obviously thrown in his full support to the Iranians and Hizballah who openly want to murder all the Jews in Israel and elsewhere. The proof of it is the last 2 lines: “Syrian sources have reported that Moscow warned Israel, including the visiting generals, that Russian officers have been stationed at Syrian missile batteries and air bases and if they should come to harm, the Russians would hit back. Another tale asserts that Russian flags have been hoisted over Hizballah bases in Syria.”
    There is going to be a next war and Israel will be fighting the Iranians and the Russians at the same time.
