The day after an unmanned aerial vehicle suspected of having come from Lebanon violated Israel's airspace in the South, Lebanese sources reported that several IAF aircraft violated Lebanese airspace on Sunday.

Lebanon's The Daily Star quoted residents of southeast Lebanon and Lebanese security sources as saying the IAF warplanes flew over the region. The sources were reported to have added that warplanes, as well as IAF helicopters, also were seen over the area of Sidon, a coastal Lebanese city.

The IDF did not confirm the Lebanese reports.

According to The Daily Star, Israeli warplanes violate Lebanon's airspace on an almost daily basis, which has prompted a number of Lebanese complaints to the UN Security Council.
