Israeli warplanes reportedly buzzed southern Lebanon on Sunday and conducted “mock raids” for the third consecutive day, according to the Lebanese National News Agency.

The government outlet reported earlier in the weekend that Israel Air Force jets flew over the southern Lebanese towns of Nabatieh, Tuffah, Marjayoun and Bint Jbeil.

On Friday, a Lebanese security official reported that Israeli warplanes flew over southern Lebanon and were headed toward the eastern Bekaa Valley on the Syrian border.

Israel Radio on Friday cited a Lebanese media report that claimed Israeli jets were conducting reconnaissance missions over several sites in the south.
