On the night of December 22, a source at Beirut International Airport revealed to the Sputnik website at the time of the attack against Syria, the Israeli Air Force planes were in Lebanese airspace, “in the Sidon area and Jezzine ».
«I learned of the army’s report on the Israeli enemy incursion into Lebanon’s airspace in order to attack Syria. This flagrant and inadmissible aggression must be condemned »,Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Bou Saab said on his Twitter account
The official called on international community to take measures “to counter these repeated aggressions against Lebanon sovereignty .”
Israel has already used Lebanese airspace several times to attack Syrian facilities in the provinces of Damascus, Homs and Latakia.
Lebanon doesn`t have air defense systems and, therefore, cannot control its airspace on its own.
