Lebanese media reported Sunday that Israeli Air Force warplanes had been spotted conducting mock attacks over southern Lebanon.

According to the report by Lebanese news channel Al-Nashra, four F-16 jets circled low over the Lebanon-controlled territories of the Hermon Mountain, the towns of Marjeyoun and Khiam in southern Lebanon, and the western Beqaa Valley of Lebanon. There were also reports of Israeli helicopters flying over the Shebaa Farms and the Golan Heights, as well as IDF patrols being spotted in the border area.

The report comes a week after Israel allegedly launched a series of airstrikes at Syrian military research facilities from Lebanese territory.

    As long as Lebanon remains something of a “client state” of Syria and Hezbollah it can expect that the Israeli military and intelligence forces will want to keep a close eye on the border areas and the Bekka Valley and take any actions they deem necessary for the protection of the Israeli people. Any protests about violations of their sovereign territory will fall on deaf Israeli ears. As well they should. World leaders should have learned long ago that in any conflict between its survival interests and diplomatic niceties or international laws the Israelis will, of course, opt for survival. And world opinion be damned. Are you listening, Iraq?

    The area north of Beirut to Tripoli should be covered as well…and a good place to monitor civilian communications regarding the overflights.
    The intercepted arc from Tripoli to Zahle radiating from Beirut is the critical zone.That arc must be held.
