SIDON, Lebanon: Several Israeli jets flew over south Lebanon and other regions Tuesday in contravention of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701.

Around seven planes flew over the southern region, the coastal city of Sidon, and Khaled. It was unclear whether the jets made their way to Beirut and other parts of the country.

Since Friday of last week, Israeli reconnaissance and warplanes have repeatedly violated Lebanon's airspace, reaching the eastern region and flying over Baalbek and Riyaq along with southern areas, according to the Army.

Lebanon has repeatedly asked the U.N. to exert efforts to halt the Jewish State's weekly, sometimes daily, violations of the country's borders.
