Lebanon: 6 Israeli jets fly over country

February 26, 2009 23:12

The Lebanese army said six Israeli warplanes have violated the country's airspace and flew for an hour over southern Lebanon. The army statement said the Israeli jets flew over the border village of Kfar Kila and other southern towns and villages before returning to Israel. There was no immediate comment from the Israeli military. Thursday's alleged flyovers come a day after the Lebanese military found four rockets near the border with Israel. Last week, two rockets were fired from southern Lebanon toward northern Israel, triggering Israeli artillery retaliation. Jpost.com staff contributed to this report.
