US slient on this abuse. -------------------------------------------- Lebanon says troops opened fire on IAF planes over south of country By The Associated Press Tags: overflights, Israel, Lebanon Lebanese troops opened fire on Monday on Israel Air Force warplanes flying reconnaissance missions over southern Lebanon, but no hits were reported, the Lebanese army said. The firing by the Lebanese army on IAF fighter jets flying over southern Lebanon was the second time since a UN-brokered cease-fire ended a 34-day war between Israeli forces and Hezbollah guerrillas in August 2006. A senior Lebanese military official told The Associated Press that IAF planes flew at a medium altitude over the southern city of Tyre and the border town of Naqoura on the Mediterranean coastline. The Lebanese army said in a statement that six Israeli warplanes violated airspace in southern Lebanon, drawing anti-aircraft fire near the coastal city of Tyre. "The Lebanese army's ground anti-aircraft guns confronted the hostile Israeli warplanes, forcing them to flee to occupied Palestinian territory," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with military rules. Later in the afternoon Monday, the state-run National News Agency reported that IAF warplanes staged mock raids over several towns. In Jerusalem, an Israel Defense Forces spokeswoman said the military does not elaborate on operational activity of its air force. There were no reports from Jerusalem of any planes being hit. IAF warplanes frequently fly over Lebanese airspace in what Israel says are reconnaissance missions. The Lebanese army fired on Israeli warplanes in October, in the first action since the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah war. Last year following the war, Lebanese and IDF soldiers briefly exchanged fire near the border village of Maroun el-Ras where the UN-demarcated Blue Line was not clearly marked. There were no casualties. Israeli overflights have been a constant source of tension between the two countries. Before the 2006 war, Hezbollah used to open fire on Israeli planes, with shrapnel from the anti-aircraft fire falling on Israeli communities across the border, causing some casualties.
