All sorts of unconfirmed reports of fighter aircraft movement towards Syria

There was a (much) earlier report of airstrikes on Deir ez-Zor, the largest city in eastern Syria

That came only via one source and was never confirmed

Now there are

  • Multiple reports of movement of (fighter) aircraft over Lebanon into Syrian airspace
  • Along with what seems to be a cessation of commercial aircraft take offs in the area
  • reports of explosions at Syria’s Tiyas Military Airbase, also known as the T-4 Airbase (also not confirmed) 

Still no sign of an airstrike, this seems to be the latest devlopment:

  • U.N. Security Council expected to meet about Syria attack
  • The United Kingdom’s delegation to the United Nations said that the U.N. Security Council is expected to meet on Monday
  • U.K. was joined by the United States, France, Poland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Kuwait, Peru, and the Ivory Coast in calling for the emergency meeting

All very sketchy and very unconfirmed – so just noting. There is little movement in the yen and there is some buying of ‘risk’ (eg. AUD up a few tics) so there is likely nothing to these rumours of military aircraft movement etc.
