BEIRUT (Dispatches) – The Zionist regime’s warplanes and drones on Sunday staged heavy overflights in Lebanon’s airspace, including over Beirut and its suburbs.
LBCI television said the regime’s warplanes overflew Beirut, Sidon and Keserwan at low altitude.
Al-Jadeed TV said the jets also violated Lebanon’s airspace at low altitude over the southern regions of Tyre and Bint Jbeil.
The Zionist regime has intensified its overflights in Lebanon’s airspace in recent weeks and it regularly bombs targets in neighboring Syria, sometimes from Lebanese skies.
Last year, Lebanon lodged a complaint to the United Nation against the occupying regime for violating the country’s airspace after Israeli military aircraft carried out airstrikes on multiple targets in Syria’s central province of Homs.
Lebanon’s government, the Hezbollah resistance movement and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) have repeatedly condemned the overflights, saying they are in clear violation of UN Resolution 1701 and the country’s sovereignty.
UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the war of aggression the Zionist regime launched against Lebanon in 2006, calls on the regime to respect Beirut’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
In 2009, Lebanon filed a complaint with the UN, presenting over 7,000 documents pertaining to Israeli violations of Lebanese territory.
