Jets roared over southern, northern and eastern sectors of the country on Sunday.

Residents said the planes swooped in pairs and broke the sound barrier over Tyre in the south, and flew as far north as the city of Tripoli.

In response, Hizb Allah fired anti-aircraft rounds, but made no hits.

Hizb Allah ousted Israeli occupation troops from south Lebanon in May 2000, following a 22-year occupation. Israel regularly breaches Lebanon’s airspace, in what Beirut says is a violation of its sovereignty.

Earlier this month, Beirut said it would lodge a complaint with the UN Security Council against Israel for its bombardment of alleged Hizb Allah positions and continued illegal overflights.

In August, Israeli troops blasted southern Lebanese villages after a Hizb Allah anti-aircraft shell killed an Israeli teenager in northern Israel.
