Saniora condemns 'Israeli aggression' on border

Prime Minister Fuad Saniora on Thursday denounced what he called Israel's violation of the Lebanese border, after a confrontation broke out on Wednesday night between IDF troops and Lebanese Armed Forces. Saniora discussed the border clash with UN envoy Geir Pedersen, telling him that his government condemned the "new Israeli aggression on Lebanon's sovereignty and the violation of the Blue Line." Speaking to Pedersen in front of reporters, Saniora said the incursion compounded the daily violations of Lebanese sovereignty by Israeli aircraft. The IDF confirmed that it continued to fly over Lebanon, saying that "the incident [Wednesday] hasn't led us to change our aerial activity."
