UNITED NATIONS: Israel’s violations of Lebanon’s airspace compromise efforts to stabilize the situation along the border between the two countries where U.N. peacekeepers have come across 13 instances of unauthorized arms or material since September, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said in a letter.

Despite these incidents, Annan said in a letter to the U.N. Security Council on Friday that the August cease-fire that ended this summer’s Israeli-Hezbollah war has been maintained “and there were no serious incidents or confrontations.”

But he said U.N. peacekeepers reported air violations by Israeli jets and unmanned aerial vehicles “almost on a daily basis,” which Lebanon has protested as a serious violation of its sovereignty.

Israel maintains the overflights are a security measure, and the country’s defense minister has linked the flights to the return of two Israeli soldiers captured by Hezbollah on July 12, Annan said.
