An unmanned aerial vehicle entered Lebanese airspace over the southern village of al-Naqoura, situated 91 kilometers (57 miles) south of Beirut, at 8:30 a.m. local time (0530 GMT) on Friday, according to a statement issued by the Lebanese military on Friday.
The remote-controlled aircraft carried out surveillance flights over several areas in southern Lebanon, including the towns of Riyaq and Baalbek, before it left Lebanon’s airspace at 6:30 p.m. local time (1530 GMT) while flying over the town of Alma al-Shaab.
Later in the day, two Israeli fighter jets crossed into Lebanon's airspace over the southern border village of Kfar Kila, located 96 kilometers (59 miles) south of Beirut, at 10:50 a.m. local time (0750 GMT).
The warplanes flew over several areas in Lebanon before leaving the country’s airspace at 12:20 p.m. local time (0920 GMT) while flying over the town of Alma al-Shaab.
On Thursday, an Israeli drone violated Lebanese airspace over the village of Kfar Kila at 7:15 a.m. local time (0415 GMT) and flew over several areas of southern Lebanon.
The Israeli aircraft left Lebanese airspace at 6:35 p.m. local time (1535 GMT) while flying over the village of al-Naqoura.
Another Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle crossed into Lebanon's airspace over the village of al-Naqoura at 8 p.m. local time (1700 GMT). The plane carried out surveillance flights over several areas in southern Lebanon and left at 6:10 a.m. local time (0310 GMT) on Friday while flying over the southern village of Rmeish.
Four Israeli warplanes entered Lebanon's airspace over the village of Kfar Kila at 8:30 p.m. local time (1730 GMT) on Thursday. The fighter jets flew over several areas in Lebanon before leaving the country’s airspace at 9:50 p.m. local time (1850 GMT) while flying over the town of Alma al-Shaab.
Israel violates Lebanon's airspace on an almost daily basis, claiming the flights serve surveillance purposes.
Lebanon's government, the Hezbollah resistance movement, and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, known as 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 Israel launched against Lebanon in 2006, calls on Israel to respect Lebanon's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
In 2009, Lebanon filed a complaint with the United Nations, presenting over 7,000 documents pertaining to Israeli violations of Lebanese territory.
