BEIRUT: The Lebanese Army registered four different Israeli violations of the country's airspace Friday with sightings of warplanes over the southern region and the Bekaa, in the east of the country.
"At 7:50 a.m. on Friday, two Israeli warplanes violated Lebanese airspace flying over the [southern] village of Kfar Kila and conducted aerial maneuvers over other Lebanese areas,” the Army’s general directorate said Saturday.
“The two jets left at 9:05 a.m. flying over the village of Alma Shaab [south of Lebanon],” it added.
Later in the day at 12:20 p.m., one reconnaissance plane entered Lebanon over the southern village of Rmeish to conduct aerial maneuvers over the eastern towns of Riyaq and Baalbek.
The plane left some nine hours later flying over the same southern village.
Around 7:20 p.m. of the same day, the Army said, another reconnaissance plane entered Lebanon flying over Naqoura village, the headquarters of the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon, conducting similar maneuvers over the two eastern towns.
The plane left at 11:50 p.m. flying over Alma Shaab.
On Friday, the Army said two Israeli warplanes entered Lebanon's airspace over the village of Naqoura around 12:17 a.m. leaving 10 hours later.
Lebanon has repeatedly lodged complaints at the U.N. against the Jewish state for its continuous violations of the country’s air and land borders in contravention of Security Council Resolution 1701.
