UN protests against Israeli violations of Lebanon airspace


The United Nations peacekeeping mission in Lebanon has strongly protested to Israel over the significant number of over-flights in Lebanese airspace during the last few days in violation of a Security Council resolution ending the 34-day war between Israel and Hizbollah militants in 2006.

Such violations of Lebanese sovereignty tend to exacerbate local apprehensions and are in contravention of the mission’s objectives and efforts to reduce tensions and establish a stable security environment in south Lebanon, the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) said, adding it had reported the incidents to the Council through the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO).
