The Lebanese Army reported Thursday 10 Israeli breaches of the country's airspace and territorial waters over a period of 48 hours.

On top of violating Lebanese airspace every single day.
On top of continuing the illegal occupation of Lebanese villages.
And, of course, not even one drop of Western media coverage.
The military said it recorded five breaches by Israeli drones overflying parts of Lebanon overnight Thursday which came hours after Israeli warplanes flew in Lebanese airspace on four different occasions Wednesday. An Israeli patrol boat also sailed 166 meters into Lebanon's territorial waters off Ras Naqoura border town on Tuesday.
The army said it was following up on the breaches with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).
Israeli aircraft overfly Lebanon on almost daily basis despite a UN Security Council resolution banning it from breaching Lebanese sovereignty. The resolution had ended a 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah and beefed up the UN peacekeeping mission in south Lebanon.
