Israeli Planes Violate Lebanon Airspace

The Lebanese Army says two unmanned Israeli aircrafts have conducted overflights in the south and east of Lebanon in violation of the country’s airspace.

According to the Lebanese army’s Wednesday statement, the first unmanned aircraft entered over Lebanon’s southern border early in the evening, while a second similar plane violated the country’s airspace from the eastern frontier later at night, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The second plane remained in the country’s airspace for several hours.

The frequent Israeli violations of Lebanese airspace come in breach of the United Nations Security Council’s Resolution 1701, which ended the Israeli war on Lebanon in 2006.

The Resolution requires Israel to respect Lebanese sovereignty.

Beirut complained to the UN in 2009 about the Israeli activity over its southern territory.
