Four Israeli fighter jets have penetrated Lebanese airspace and flown over parts of the country in flagrant violation of a UN Security Council resolution.

The military aircraft violated Lebanese airspace over the southern border village of Kfar Kila, located 96 kilometers south of Beirut, on Sunday, according to a statement issued by the Lebanese military.

The warplanes flew over several areas in southern Lebanon before they left Lebanese airspace while flying over the border town of Alma al-Shaab.

Israel violates Lebanon's airspace on an almost daily basis, claiming the flights serve surveillance purposes.

Lebanon's government, the Hezbollah resistance movement, and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, known as UNIFIL, have repeatedly condemned the over flights, saying they are in clear violation of UN Resolution 1701 and the country's sovereignty.
