12 Israeli warplanes violate Lebanese airspace
At least 12 Israeli warplanes have violated Lebanon’s airspace, conducting several illegal flights over the country, the Lebanese army says.

According to a statement by Lebanese army, the Israeli planes entered Lebanon’s airspace on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. local time and roamed over different parts of the country.

The army also stated that an Israeli reconnaissance plane flew over the southern area of Naqoura for more than seven hours.

Lebanon’s military often reports airspace violations by Israeli aircraft but does not usually open fire on them. The Israeli military claims the flights serve surveillance purposes.

The airspace violations, which are reported on an almost daily basis, contravene the United Nations Security Council’s Resolution 1701, which ended the Israeli war on Lebanon in 2006.

According to evidence-backed statistics submitted to the UN by the Lebanese government in 2009, Israel had breached the provisions of the resolution on more than 7,000 occasions by violating Lebanon’s airspace, territorial waters, and land border
