Beirut (ST): The spokesman for the UNIFIL Andrea Tenenti affirmed that the recurrent Israeli violations of Lebanese airspace constitute a violation of the UN resolution No. 1701 and the Lebanese sovereignty.
In a statement, Tenenti said that the UN Secretary General denounced on several occasions all the Israeli violations of the Lebanese sovereignty and called for halting them.
