Lebanese residents have been witnessing an increasing frequency of low-altitude Israeli flights, unsettling in particular the residents of Beirut who are still enduring the effects of the apocalyptic explosion of August 4th.
A daily average of 12.6 airspace breaches between June 17th and October 20th was recorded by the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) in southern Lebanon.
A total of 61 hours and 51 minutes in overflight time shows a “significant increase from the previous reporting period,” the peacekeepers noted.
However, Israel entering Lebanese airspace to carry out strikes in Syria against Iran-backed forces and militias, as well as to keep an eye on Hezbollah’s operations in Lebanon, is nothing new to the Lebanese residents.
Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah waved off the idea of an impending clash with Israel but warned in a speech that his party should remain vigilant in the remaining days of Trump’s presidency.
