Six Israeli fighter jets have breached the Lebanese airspace in flagrant violation of a United Nations Security Council resolution, the Lebanese military says.

Two Israeli aircraft flew over the border village of Kfar Kila, located 96 kilometers (59 miles) south of the capital Beirut, at 9:27 a.m. (0627 GMT) on Saturday and conducted several unwarranted flights above areas in southern Lebanon, said a statement released by the Lebanese military.

The Israeli warplanes left the Lebanese airspace at 11:00 a.m. local time (0800 GMT) while flying over the southern border town of Alma al-Shaab.

Earlier in the day, four Israeli fighter jets had infringed upon the Lebanese airspace and hovered over the southern sector of the country.

The planes flew over the village of al-Naqoura, located 91 kilometers (57 miles) south of Beirut.

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

The Lebanese government, the Hezbollah resistance movement and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, known as UNIFIL, have repeatedly condemned the Israeli violations, saying they are against 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 Tel Aviv to respect Beirut's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

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