U.S.-Led Syria Strike Did Not Violate Lebanon Airspace
Missiles fired by the U.S., the UK and France during Saturday dawn's strike on Syria did not cross Lebanon's airspace, Lebanese military sources said.
“The army's radars and the radars at Beirut's airport did not detect any violation of the Lebanese airspace at dawn yesterday,” the sources told al-Hayat newspaper in remarks published Sunday.
The narrowly targeted strike took aim at three alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria's Damascus and Homs provinces and the sounds of explosions were heard in Lebanese border regions.
U.S. President Donald Trump and his allies ordered the mission in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack a week ago on the rebel-held town of Douma that left more than 40 people dead.
