BEIRUT: Hezbollah slammed ongoing Israeli breaches of Lebanese sovereignty Tuesday, questioning the purpose of the increasing flights over the country.
“Israel’s persistent breaches of Lebanese sovereignty are very dangerous, especially when Israeli fighter jets are violating the country’s airspace in a perpetual and intensive manner.” MP Hassan Fadlallah said in a statement.
“[This breach] casts enormous challenges on the Lebanese state and political parties in determining the hidden intentions of Israel. Is Israel concealing something?” he added.
“Though reassuring [Lebanese citizens] that the resistance is vigilant and ready to confront any aggression on the country, we call on everyone to be aware of the real dangers that threaten Lebanon,” the statement said.
Fadlallah also called on President Michel Sleiman and Prime Minister Najib Mikati to address Israel’s breaches and exert efforts in order to end them.
