The Israeli Foreign Ministry wants the air force to cut back its flights over Lebanon, saying some are an unnecessary provocation of UN forces patrolling southern Lebanon, Army Radio reported Tuesday. On Tuesday, Army Radio cited Foreign Ministry officials as contending that not all the flights are surveillance missions, and those that are not unnecessarily provoke the expanded UN force policing southern Lebanon as part of the cease-fire.
