The French commanders of the UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon say they will open fire on Israeli jets if they continue their illegal overflights.
Israel has breached the ceasefire more than one thousand times since it came into force in August (Hizbollah has breached it twice). Most of their breaches refer to their flights into Lebanon. They fly low over the cities breaking the sound barrier (it sounds like a bomb, and is intended to scare civilians).
France says this is a clear breach, and they will open fire if it continues, according to Israel’s Defence Minister Amir Peretz.
Israel says it will continue to illegally enter Lebanese airspace. They say arms transfers are continuing, and they may start bombing.
