Reports are now being circulated by the Western media outlets citing Lebanon’s National News Agency regarding an alleged Israeli bombing of the Lebanese-Syrian border on Monday February 24, 2014.
These raids allegedly took place near Nabi Sheet, a remote Lebanese village in Bekaa Valley. There were no claims as to what the initial target of the attacks may have been.
However, it is being reported by AP that Hezbollah has a strong presence in Bekaa Valley and border regions have served as entry points for Hezbollah into Syria in order to assist Syrian government forces in much the same way that terrorists are crossing the northern border of Turkey into Syria. It should be pointed out, of course, that Hezbollah forces were invited into the country in order to help establish order.
In the face of these reports, the Lebanese military is denying that there is any evidence that the strikes have taken place. A Lebanese army spokesman did state that the military is investigating these claims.
