Israel Continues Violation Of Lebanese Air Space


UN Envoy Concerned By Israeli Violations Of Lebanese Air Space

A United Nations envoy expressed his deep concern today over the most recent violations by Israel of the line marking the withdrawal of its troops from Lebanon.

A total of 14 flights across the so-called Blue Line were recorded yesterday, prompting Staffan de Mistura, Secretary-General Kofi Annan's Personal Representative for Southern Lebanon, to reiterate the UN's call on Israel to cease these violations and remind all parties that one violation cannot justify another.

Last month saw a flurry of violations from both sides of the Blue Line, with rockets fired from the Lebanese side and Israeli aircraft flying over Lebanese air space.
