Israel Sends Spy Balloon over Lebanese Town

W460

The Israeli army on Saturday sent a spy balloon over the Lebanese border town of Houla, Lebanon’s National News Agency said.

The agency said the balloon hovered over the town for 15 minutes.

Cautious calm is meanwhile engulfing the Lebanese-Israeli border, NNA added.

Tensions have surged in the border area since Israel killed a Hizbullah militant in an airstrike in Syria.

On Monday, Israel shelled Lebanese border areas after accusing Hizbullah of staging an infiltration attempt. The Iran-backed group denied involvement in any activity on the border but vowed that its retaliation to the Syria raid will certainly come.

"The Iran-backed group denied involvement in any activity on the border" but doesn't deny that they are there illegally in violation of resolution 1701.

Almost certainly it wouldn't need to if Lebanon didn't allow Hizballah violate Resolution 1701, morning, day and night.

Which would also mean that Israel should stop occupying Lebanese land.

Why should 1 party uphold all the resolution conditions when the other isn't?
