Lebanon will file a formal complaint to the United Nations Security Council against Israel’s use of its airspace to attack Syria, the country’s foreign ministry said yesterday.
In a statement, the ministry denounced “the air strikes against Syria” and reiterated that “Lebanese airspace should not be used to attack Syria”.
On Sunday, a Lebanese army statement said “four Israeli warplanes have violated Lebanese airspace over the sea, north of Beirut, heading east to Baalbek and then departed from the same location”.
Russia and military sources from the Syrian regime confirmed that the attack was carried out by Israeli warplanes.
Interfax news agency quoted the Russian army as saying that two Israeli F-15 fighter jets used Lebanese airspace and launched the air strikes against the airbase.
