Israeli warplanes have flown at low altitude over southern Lebanon in defiance of a United Nations resolution, reports from Beirut say.
The fighter jets allegedly caused sonic booms as they flew over the cities of Sidon and Tyre, as well as the towns of Bint Jbeil and Marjayoun.
Israel has so far made no comment on the Lebanese claims.
Israel has been criticised by the UN for making a number of overflights in Lebanon in recent weeks.
The planes also flew over the Bint Jbeil region, a stronghold of the militant Hezbollah group, they said.
Israeli warplanes have been violating Lebanese airspace on a near- daily basis in the past two weeks, but on Tuesday the aircraft were seen flying lower than usual.
Israel has drawn intense international criticism by continuing overflights after UN Resolution 1701 was adopted and a ceasefire was implemented on August 14, 2006, ending 33-days of Israeli war against Hezbollah.

Yeah who does Israel think they are? They only get attacked almost everyday by thugs sponsor by countries like Syria. Maybe they don't want to wait for a nuke blast for them to do something. It is real easy for you guys to point the finger when you can walk down the street without and rpg flying by your head.
