Hebrew media: Israel closes its airspace near Lebanon

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The Israeli army closed airspace along the border with Lebanon for flights, Israeli military sources said on Wednesday.

This comes after the Israeli army announced on Tuesday the imposition of restrictions on the movement of vehicles and non-military vehicles on the border with Lebanon, and stressed in a statement that “the IDF forces remain in a state of permanent readiness for several scenarios.”

The Secretary General of the Lebanese “Hezbollah” Hassan Nasrallah has promised Israel an appropriate response after targeting Hezbollah fighters in Syria, and promised to shoot down Israeli planes marching in the skies of Lebanon, after one of them exploded and another fall in a neighborhood in the southern suburb of Beirut.

Israeli media said earlier that the northern command in the Israeli army remained on high alert two days ago and had deployed its battalions in the area under intelligence estimates, near the border with Syria and Lebanon.

The Israeli army also deployed several batteries from the Iron Dome system near the border.
