Israel has its own unique way to remind Syrian president Bashir Assad who’s boss.

Following last week’s Hizbullah shelling in the North, the Israel Air Force dispatched fighter jets to Syria that buzzed the palace of Syrian President Bashir Assad in a warning to rein in Hizbullah, Channel 1 reported Friday night.

The warplanes reportedly swooped in low over Assad’s summer palace in the port city of Latakia, where Assad was staying. Assad reportedly saw and heard the jets, the TV reported.

The aircraft later buzzed Beirut, but the message was apparently received and Hizbullah kept their anti-aircraft cannons in the North quiet.
