Two Israeli jets flew over Romania

Last week two Israeli reconnaissance jets flew over Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary, ‘Romania Libera’ writes. In what concerns Romanian air space, the Ministry of Defence stated the Israeli jets were conducting a training exercise that had Romania’s agreement.

Israeli jets flew over Lebanon on Sunday as well. The army’s antiaircraft missile batteries opened fire yesterday on two Israeli jets that violated Lebanon’s air space. ‘The antiaircraft missile batteries opened fire on two Israeli jets that flew at high altitude over the Hasbaya region,’ the Lebanese army stated. The Lebanese army publishes daily announcements in which it signals Israeli jets violating Lebanese air space but does not open fire on them unless the jets are in shooting range of its batteries.

The UN views the overflights as an infringement of Resolution 1701, a document that led to the cessation of hostilities between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006. Israel says that the overflights seek to maintain an eye on an alleged clandestine smuggling of arms through Syria to Hezbollah.
