Israeli plane violates Lebanon airspace
An Israeli reconnaissance plane has violated Lebanon’s airspace in breach of the country’s sovereignty, according to the Lebanese army.
The army said in a statement on Thursday that the aircraft entered the Lebanese airspace over the southern border town of Naqoura, a Press TV correspondent reported.
The plane then flew over eastern Lebanon and the capital Beirut, the statement added.
Meanwhile, another Israeli plane had violated the airspace a few hours earlier on Thursday.
Lebanon’s military often reports airspace violations by Israeli aircraft but does not usually open fire on them.
The United Nations considers Israeli violations of Lebanese airspace as breaches of UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brought an end to the Israeli offensive against Lebanon in 2006.
