Two Israeli jets violate Lebanese airspace
[Iran Press TV] Two Israeli fighter jets have penetrated Lebanese airspace and flown over several areas of the country in blatant violation of a UN Security Council resolution.

The military aircraft crossed into Leb's airspace over the southern border village of Kfar Kila, located 96 kilometers (59 miles) south of Beirut, at 1 p.m. local time (1000 GMT) on Tuesday, according to a statement issued by the Lebanese military.

The warplanes flew over several areas in Leb before leaving Lebanese airspace at 3 p.m. local time (1200 GMT) while flying over the southern border town of Alma al-Shaab.

Israel violates Leb's airspace on an almost daily basis, claiming the flights serve surveillance purposes.

Leb's government, the Hezbollah resistance movement, and the UN Interim Force in Leb, known as UNIFIL, have repeatedly condemned the overflights, saying they are in clear violation of UN Resolution 1701 and the country's illusory sovereignty.

#3  I'm reminded of an old Woody Allen joke (back when he was funny, not pathetic):

It wasn't a moving violation.

#1  when you're "violated" as frequently as has happened from Iran and Syria, you've earned teh designation of "easy" and your virtuous outrage has a touch of hypocrisy. If you don't want to be treated like a whore, doen't act like one
