BEIRUT: Israeli warplanes were seen flying at a low altitude Thursday over south Lebanon, security sources told The Daily Star.
The warplanes flew over the coastal cities of Sidon, Tyre and Nabatieh for five minutes, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The sources also said that Israel’s latest violation of Lebanon’s airspace comes amid talk that the Jewish state is preparing for military maneuvers on its northern border.
Israeli planes, whether reconnaissance crafts or warplanes, violate Lebanon’s airspace almost daily in contravention of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701. Lebanon has repeatedly complained to the U.N. regarding such violations.
