The Lebanese army says that four Israeli warplanes violated the country's airspace and flew for more than an hour over Lebanon.

An army statement says two of the planes flew over the disputed Chebaa Farms on Lebanon's border with Syria's Israeli-occupied Golan Heights before going over different parts of the country. Israeli warplanes flights over Lebanon are not uncommon, but Sunday's sorties come as Israel continued for the second day its intensive air raids against the Gaza Strip and three days after Lebanese troops discovered eight rockets that were ready to be fired into Israel from Lebanon.
