Four Israeli reconnaissance planes have entered Lebanese airspace in violation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701, Press TV reports.

On Monday, three reconnaissance aircraft entered Lebanon over the southern towns of Naqoura and Rmeish at 8:45 a.m. local time (0645 GMT).

The Israeli planes left the Lebanese aerial territory over the southern towns of Rmeish and Alma al-Shab at about 00:40 a.m. local time on Tuesday (2240 GMT on Monday).

Another Israeli reconnaissance aircraft also entered Lebanese airspace over the southern village of Kfar Kila at 8:05 p.m. local time (1805 GMT) on Monday.

The plane left the Lebanese airspace at 6:50 a.m. local time (0450 GMT) on Tuesday over Alma al-Shab.

Israel violates Lebanon’s airspace on an almost daily basis.

In 2009, Lebanon filed a complaint with the United Nations, presenting over 7,000 documents pertaining to Israeli violation of Lebanese territory.

UN Security Council Resolution 1701 calls on Israel to respect Lebanon’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
