In response to the events very early on Thursday, Lebanon is now lodging another official complaint to the United Nations against the repeated Israeli violations of Lebanon’s sovereignty.
Overnight, parts of northern Lebanon were shaken by the sound of loud blasts echoing through the calm night.
The blasting sounds were reported across various regions in North Lebanon and North Bekaa, including Akkar and Tripoli, and even in the region of Byblos, where an Israeli rocket crashed, leaving a 15-meter crater in the town of Lehfed.
In light of these events, President Michel Aoun has asked Acting Foreign Minister Zeina Akar to inform the UN about the “continued violations of Lebanese sovereignty” by Israel, according to the President’s media office.
This would be one of the many complaints made by Lebanon about the violations, to no avail.
Even after the request to lodge a complaint, Israeli warplanes did not stop. They were reported flying at high altitudes above the Upper Keserwan area on Thursday afternoon.
