(En - 03 Apr 2014 - News) Lebanon: Israeli jets conduct ‘mock strikes’

Israeli Air Force jets conducted mock air strikes over southern Lebanon on Wednesday and Thursday, Lebanese media and a government agency said on Thursday.
According to the official National News Agency, which quoted the Lebanese military, three Israeli planes entered Lebanese airspace on Wednesday morning, flew in circles over towns in southern and eastern Lebanon, even going as far north as Beirut, and then returned to Israeli airspace by 6:10 p.m.
On Thursday morning, Israeli jets were once again seen over southern Lebanon, this time conducting “mock raids… at a medium altitude,” the news agency reported.
There was no confirmation from Israel about any overflights of Lebanon.
Reports of Israeli overflights of Lebanon are frequent in Lebanese media.
Tensions have been high in last several months along the border, flaring occasionally into attacks on IDF patrols by Lebanese paramilitary groups and Israeli strikes against Hezbollah weapons shipments from Syria.
