An Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle crossed into Lebanon's airspace over the southern border village of

Kfar Kila, located 96 kilometers (59 miles) south of Beirut, at 7:15 a.m. local time (0415 GMT) on Monday, according to a statement issued by the Lebanese military on Tuesday.

The remote-controlled aircraft carried out surveillance flights over several areas in southern Lebanon and the eastern Bekaa region before it left Lebanese airspace at around 1 p.m. local time (1000 GMT) while flying over Kfar Kila village.

Later in the day, an Israeli drone entered Lebanon’s airspace over the southern village of Aitaroun at 3:20 p.m. local time (1220 GMT) and flew over several areas in southern Lebanon.

The aircraft left Lebanese airspace at 5:25 p.m. local time (1425 GMT) while flying over the southern border town of Alma al-Shaab.

Another Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle also penetrated Lebanese airspace over Alma al-Shaab at 5:05 p.m. local time (1405 GMT).

The aircraft conducted surveillance flights over several areas in southern Lebanon before leaving the country’s airspace at 6:45 p.m. local time (1545 GMT) while flying over the southern village of al-Naqoura, situated 91 kilometers (57 miles) south of Beirut.

Israel violates Lebanon's airspace on an almost daily basis, claiming the flights serve surveillance purposes.

Lebanon's government, the Hezbollah resistance movement, and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, known as UNIFIL, have repeatedly condemned the overflights, saying they are in clear violation of UN Resolution 1701 and the country's sovereignty.

UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the war of aggression Israel launched against Lebanon in 2006, calls on Israel to respect Lebanon's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

In 2009, Lebanon filed a complaint with the United Nations, presenting over 7,000 documents pertaining to Israeli violations of Lebanese territory.
