Lebanese military forces fired on Israeli jets flying over the southern part of the country in a possible sign of renewed border tensions.

The Lebanese military said it fired on four Israeli planes flying over southern Lebanon on Tuesday. A military statement said no hits were recorded, though Lebanese gunners were able to force the planes to a higher altitude for safety.

Andrea Tenenti, a spokesperson for the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon, said the Israeli incursion was a clear violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions dealing with Lebanese security issues. UPI
