The Lebanese army frequently reports violations of its airspace by Israeli warplanes and drones.

Lebanon is locked in a dispute with Israel over an area in the Mediterranean Sea spanning about 860 square kilometers (some 332 square miles), known as Zone No. 9, which is rich in oil and gas.

In recent months, Lebanon and Israel have accused each other of land, air, and maritime space violations.
