BEIRUT: Twelve Israeli warplanes violated Lebanon’s airspace between Tuesday evening and dawn on Wednesday, a statement from Lebanon’s Army command said.

“Breaching Lebanon’s sovereignty and [United Nations] Resolution 1701, twelve warplanes of the Israeli enemy breached Lebanon’s airspace,” said the statement.

The statement added that the warplanes flew over different Lebanese regions.

Israel has repeatedly violated Lebanon’s airspace despite UN Resolution 1701, which urges the country to respect Lebanon’s sovereignty.
