Israeli jets reportedly carried out a series of mock raids over southern Lebanon Wednesday evening, flying low over the towns of Nabatieh, Iqlim Tuffah and Marjaayoun.

The Israeli Air Force also flew over other areas in the region earlier in the day, the Lebanese National News Agency reported.

The fighter planes also reportedly flew over the Litani River, a natural barrier that marked the northern lines of the IDF presence in Lebanon before Israel’s 2000 withdrawal to the 1949 armistice lines.

Over the past week, Israeli jets buzzed over Lebanon a number of times.
