Lebanon says Israel aggression a 'threat to regional stability'

BEIRUT (AFP) - Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Sunday condemned Israel sending drones that fell over southern Beirut as a "blatant attack on Lebanon’s sovereignty".

"This new aggression... forms a threat to regional stability and an attempt to push the situation towards more tension," he said in a statement.

Hariri also charged that it was in violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701 that ended a 2006 war between Israel and Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
