Approximately a dozen Israeli Air Force jetfighters carried out reconnaissance flights over Lebanon since Friday, reflecting the high alert over possible attacks on Israel if the United States attacks Syria.
Hezbollah has tens of thousands of missiles in Lebanon and is fighting in Syria alongside loyalists to Syrian President Bassar al-Assad, who has threatened to attack Israel.
“Hezbollah is following up and watching the situation and will do what is appropriate at the appropriate time,” a Hezbollah cabinet minister stated. Both Israel and Hezbollah have placed their armies on high alert.
“As of this morning, everyone has been called back to their positions, especially in the south of the country. No one can go on leave,” according to a Voice of Russia dispatch quoting a Hezbollah supported in Beirut.
