Israeli Jets Break Sound Barrier over Tyre

Israeli warplanes on Wednesday violated the airspace over south Lebanese, especially over the coastal city of Tyre, Lebanon's National News Agency reported.

“They staged several overflights and broke the sound barrier, creating a sonic boom that echoed across the South,” NNA said.

The fighter jets then returned to airbases inside Israel, the agency added.

Israel's violation of Lebanon's airspace has become a near-daily routine since its first invasion of the South in 1978 but sonic booms have become rare in recent years.
