The United Nations has called on Israel to halt military air patrols over Lebanon amid heightened tensions after air raids on targets in Syria, a UN spokesman said Tuesday.
UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said that the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, UNIFIL, had protested after recording an increase in Israeli flights over Lebanon.
UNIFIL "says that in the course of the past week it has observed a higher number of Israeli air violations over Lebanese airspace," Nesirky told a briefing, the AFP news agency reported.
He added that the flights are a "violation of Lebanese sovereignty and of Security Council resolution 1701" which allowed for a ceasefire that ended Israel's military movement into southern Lebanon in 2006. The resolution, it should be recalled, also mandated disarmament of Hizbullah, which has increased its missile stockpile from 6000 to 60,000 since signing the resolution
"We are aware of the concerns raised by the Lebanese government in this regard. The UN interim force has lodged firm protests with the Israeli Defense Force on this matter asking them to cease the overflights," Nesirky said, according to AFP.

(note: This You Tube clip is provided with Spanish subtitles in the interests of multiculturalism and other stuff that makes me feel good about myself despite my vast wealth. I keep linking to songs by Groucho Marx because each time someone clicks on them, I get one agara deposited in Pay Pal from the Groucho Marx estate. Thus far, Chico and Harpo's estates have not ante'd up, but several elephants have been shot in my pajamas by the IDF. How the elephants got to Israel, I'll never know, but at least the mystery of my disappearing nightwear has been solved).
The UN can’t have Israel protecting themselves now can they? After all Israel needs to be obliterated from the face of the earth to prove God doesn’t exist so they can move forward with their Agenda 21 One World Government which zchristians will always oppose
In all practicality, does Lebanon even exist as a country anymore?
I was going to warn you about falling ducks from the sky with payment from Groucho’s estate but it's good they're just crediting Pay Pal.
I studiously avoid saying the secret word.
It’s a clubhouse where Hizbollah meets to assemble their missiles.
Odd, I don't see them on the excerpt list.
They actually are on the excerpt only list. :(

I know it is not there on that list, but if you try and post anything from Israel National News (Arutz 7) without an “excerpt” only, it blocks you and you get a message.
Israel needs to miss once and take out the UN.
Netanyahu should announce that the planes must have come from “Shangri-la”
If you look at the history of this “eleutheria5” critter,
you see a definite pattern of single-source pimping.
Evidence suggests this pimp is getting hits for it’s own material.
I just got my Israel and U.N. Flags, after I paint this: Over my UN Flag I may just have to raise both flags.
So the U.N. is taking the side of Hizbullah, but then, we knew that the U.N. is full of global trash.
Look at you, posting links and stuff just like a grown-up.
Yeah, you sleep through it enough to find, copy & post a link.
Bit worried there, are you pimpy?
Quite right. Besides, I find plenty of interesting material right here on freep, having intelligent informative discussions with people about my posts and theirs. So why go anywhere else? A7 interests me, because it closely follows outpost evictions and incidents with the sand nazis, and gives me info before I can find it anywhere else. Living here, those things are more important to me. Of course, there are those on freep with whom I cannot carry on any conversation on account of their attitudes, so them I ignore.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
State is dying to take the UN side.
Not a blog pimp in this case.
