Lebanese anti-aircraft guns have opened fire on four Israeli fighter planes that were violating airspace over the southern part of the country.
U.N. peacekeepers and Lebanon say Israeli flights over the country violate Security Council Resolution 1701 that ended a 34-day war between Israel and Hezbollah guerrillas in 2006.
Israeli warplanes fly over Lebanon frequently but are no frequently fired on. An spokesman for the Israeli army said it was checking the report of the incident.
Israel relies heavily on air supremacy and its air raids destroyed large districts of the Hezbollah-dominated southern suburbs of Beirut and several towns and villages in south Lebanon during the 2006 war.
The Lebanese military reports, almost on a daily basis, airspace violations by Israeli aircraft, but does not normally open fire on them. The UN considers Israeli violation of Lebanese airspace to be against Security Council Resolution 1701, which brought an end to the Israeli offensive on Lebanon in 2006.

Well, the hezbolla terrorists rearming is against the UN resolution, but I don't see anyone doing anything about it....
So, as usual, Israel will have to take care of business that no one else will.
