    Lebanese forces fire at Israeli drone

    (AFP) – 1 day ago

    BEIRUT — Lebanese anti-aircraft guns opened fire on Saturday on an Israeli drone that entered Lebanese airspace in the south of the country, the military said in a statement.

    "A surveillance drone of the Israeli enemy" overflew "the area of Bint Jbeil at medium altitude" in the morning, the statement said.

    "Army anti-aircraft batteries opened fire on the drone, forcing it to gain altitude before leaving Lebanese airspace."

    The country's military reports almost daily on airspace violations by Israeli aircraft, but does not normally open fire at them.

    The United Nations considers Israeli air incursions into Lebanon to be a violation of Security Council Resolution 1701.

    "To the best of my knowledge, there's probably no other country in the world -- probably, I may be wrong -- which is subject to such an intrusive regime of aerial surveillance," UN special envoy for Lebanon Michael Williams said this month.

    Resolution 1701 brought an end to the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah militants based in southern Lebanon, although the accord has failed to seal a permanent ceasefire.

    It mainly insists on the strict embargo on providing arms to Lebanese militias, while also affirming the Beirut government's sovereignty across the whole country.

    I've been looking at how Israel is interacting with it's neighbors and the global world for a while now and it always seems that Israel is the aggressor nation. I know India is friends with Israel and we are getting alot of technology from them but Israel always seem like they can do whatever they want and they will just get a slap on the wrist. I am just wondering when other countries are going to have enough, or even if they can stop Israel from doing what it wants.

    Yeah that's another thing I also have been observing. When Russia tries to help Syria, Iran, or Lebanon and other countries Russia somehow is a bad nation because of it. Come on, give me a break, if it weren't for Russia the Middle Eastern countries could be taken over in a week. And remember India also got help from Russia when we needed them too.

    I personally will love seeing a Russian Mig take out a Israeli drone thats ILLEGALLY spying in someone elses country.
