Media outlets in Lebanon reported a large explosion east of Tyre Sunday night and that Lebanese army and security forces had surrounded the scene. According to Sky News, Israel Air Force planes were seen flying in Lebanese air space at the time of the explosion.

Meanwhile, Hezbollah’s television network Al-Manar reported that the explosion in the Tyre area was due to a device thrown by unknown persons and is unconnected to Israeli aircraft.

According to the Lebanese sources, the IAF has recently increased its flyovers and makes daily incursions into Lebanese air space. The Lebanese army confirmed Sunday night that Israeli aircraft were flying over southern Lebanon and the Bekaa Valley; however, it reported no attacks.

The New York Times reported Sunday night that the attack that took place last week in Syria, which according to foreign sources was carried out by the IAF, damaged Syria’s central research center where biological and chemical weapons are manufactured. On Saturday, Haaretz reported that the attack was directed at a weapons convoy parked at the time of the attack near the research center.
