The Lebanese army said on Wednesday that 16 Israeli warplanes violated Lebanon's airspace by flying over the country. An army statement said that the Israeli overflights lasted more than an hour and were in violation of a UN resolution that ended the Second Lebanon War. According to the statement released Wednesday, 10 Israeli jets flew in batches over southern border towns and villages and then headed north. It said that another six Israeli warplanes flew in batches over the Mediterranean off the southern city of Sidon and off the coastal town of Jounieh and the city of Byblos in the north before heading east. There was no immediate statement from the Israeli military.
