An Israeli military aircraft violated Lebanese airspace in the south of the country earlier today, the Directorate of Guidance in the Lebanese Army said.

The jet was on a reconnaissance mission, entering Lebanon over the town of Kafr Kila, and circled over the south, and then left Lebanese airspace over the town of Aalma ech Chaab.

The Directorate pointed out that a similar aircraft violated Lebanese airspace over the town of Rmeish and then over the town of Naqoura.

On Sunday, Israeli jets flew low over the city of Saida in southern Lebanon causing sonic booms that broke windows and shook buildings for the first time in years, security sources and residents said.
