Israeli warplanes overfly south Lebanon: “NAQURA, Lebanon, Nov 3 (AFP) – Two Israeli warplanes flew low over southern Lebanon on Monday breaking the sound barrier over the town of Naqura where UN peacekeepers on the border with Israel have their base, a correspondent said.

The planes also overflew the coastal towns of Tyre and Sidon, further north, without drawing fire from Hezbollah militiamen posted in south Lebanon, unlike the previous day when the militia opened up with anti-aircraft fire.

Israeli aircraft flew over several regions of Lebanon on Sunday, also breaking the sound barrier.
