On Monday morning in the Beqa’a Governorate of east Lebanon, the Russian Air Force conducted their first series of airstrikes over Ras Ba’albak, Jaroud Qarah, Jaroud Rankous, and Jaroud ‘Arsal in the Qalamoun Mountains.

The Russian Air Force struck several enemy targets that were shared by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Syrian Al-Qaida group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, including the Jaroud ‘Arsal-Rankous border-crossing into Syria.

 

According to a military source in Lebanon, the Russians notified the Lebanese Armed Forces before they entered their airspace; this notification allowed the Russian Air Force full access, which will likely stir up some political turmoil between the March 8th and March 14th movements.
