On Monday, the Lebanese army announced that an Israeli gunboat had violated Lebanon’s territorial waters.
In a statement, the Directorate of Orientation, led by the Lebanese army, said: “On 2/8/2021, between 11.05 and 11.07 hours, an Israeli enemy gunboat violated the Lebanese territorial waters off Ras al-Naqoura, for a distance of about 203 meters.”
The statement added, “The matter of the breach will be followed up in coordination with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon.”
Beirut has repeatedly accused the Israeli forces of violating the country’s air and sea borders, in violation of Resolution 1701 issued in 2006 by the United Nations Security Council to stop the fighting between Israel and Lebanon.
