Israeli jets strike along Lebanese-Syrian border

26th Feb 2014

Israeli warplanes conducted a raid near the northern area of the Bekaa Valley along the Lebanese-Syrian border late Monday night, the Lebanese National News Agency reported.

It was unclear if the raid had struck within Lebanese territory, with both Israel and Syria remaining silent about the incident.

However, the strike came two days after the Israeli army chief of staff threatened action to stop any transfer of weapons that would effect the military balance of power in the region.

Initial reports stated that the Israeli strike had hit close to the towns of Jenta and al-Nabi Sheet in the northern region of the Bekaa Valley, but security and military sources told Al-Akhbar that the strikes did not fall within Lebanese territory. Sources also stated that it was unclear what the target was.

The Hezbollah television station Al-Manar also stated there had been “no raid on Lebanese territory,” reporting only the “strong presence of enemy planes over the area north of Bekaa” in eastern Lebanon.

According to Reuters, an Israeli security source confirmed that there had been “unusually intense air force activity in the north,” referring to Lebanon.

The strikes come at a time when a brutal and volatile conflict is raging in Syria, especially in the Qalamoun Mountains across the border from the norther Bekaa Valley.

Israel has struck Syria at least three times in the past year, and routinely violates Lebanese airspace.
