Israeli warplanes fly over Lebanon

Source: Guardian

Israeli warplanes flew over Lebanon again on Friday, two days after air strikes targeted a convoy of arms or a weapons research base inside Syrian territory.

Andrea Tenenti, a spokesman for the UN forces in Lebanon, Unifil, confirmed that Israeli forces had continued to violate Lebanese airspace, but said this was routine. "On Tuesday [ahead of the air strikes] there were a high number of violations, but since then it has not been unusual," he told the Guardian.

Under UN security council resolution 1701, passed following the 2006 Israel-Lebanon war, Israeli planes are forbidden from flying over Lebanon.

Israel has maintained silence over Wednesday's bombing, despite a statement from the Syrian regime that a "scientific research centre" between Damascus and the Lebanese border had been hit. Reports described the centre as a large military complex with training and communications facilities. Western diplomatic and security sources said Israel's target was a convoy of trucks carrying Russian-made anti-aircraft missiles from Syria to the Hezbollah militia in Lebanon.

1. This is really starting to scare me.

They ARE trying for a reaction and they don't care what agreements they're violating or who objects.

If Syria persists in transferring missiles to Hezbollah they are going to start a war.

4. I'm wondering if the intention in Tel-Aviv

is to get the US more directly involved, like do they want the Assad Government gone that bad?

Off topic, Hezbolla Militia buying anti-aircraft missles..now THAT is a Militia that is serious about defending itself against what they view as a tyrannical Government. Until the loons in the US backwoods bunkers start importing heavy arms from foreign nation-states, they aren't serious about that "cold, dead hands" thing, and the rest of us damn-well KNOW IT.
