Two Israeli planes broke the sound barrier over the southern towns of Hasbaya and Marjayoun on Sunday, according to police.

The resistance group confirmed in a statement that its anti-aircraft batteries opened fire on the planes.

The group has warned Israel against violating Lebanon’s airspace, saying it breaches the country’s sovereignty.

Hizb Allah, which the United States includes on a list of so-called “terrorist” groups, ousted Israeli occupation forces from south Lebanon in May 2000, following a 22-year occupation.

It holds a number of seats in parliament, runs charities, hospitals and a number of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).
