Israeli Warplanes Soar Through Lebanese Skies

F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jetF-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jetFour Israeli war planes were seen flying in the skies of Lebanon on Tuesday, according to that country’s official news agency. Israel Air Force aircraft were reportedly seen flying in the afternoon sometime between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm local time, sources said late in the day.
 
By Wednesday, the reports became an official communique posted by Lebanon's Ministry of Information.
 
The country’s National News Agency (NNA) said in an official statement issued Wednesday, “On Tuesday 12/1/2013 at 4:50 p.m. two (2) Israeli war planes violated Lebanese air-space from above Kafrkila village, executed circular flight over various Lebanese regions; and then left at 8:05 p.m. from above Rmeish village.
 
“And at 8:25 p.m., two (2) other Israeli war planes violated Lebanese air-space from above Kafrkila village, executed circular flight over different Lebanese region; and then left at 9:05 p.m. from above Alma Shaab village.”
 
The statement was posted to the Lebanese Ministry of Information website in English.
 
Lebanese and Iranian media claimed earlier in the week that “at least 12 Israeli war planes” had violated Lebanese air space last Thursday morning, “roaming over different parts of the country.”
 
One of the reports, posted by Iranian Press TV, claimed “an Israeli reconnaissance plane flew over the southern area of Naqoura for more than seven hours.”
 
There has been no comment from the IDF or Israel’s Prime Minister’s Office.
