Over the past 15 years, 22,111 Israeli military aircraft have violated Lebanese airspace, a report has found.

According to a report by Air Pressure, 8,231 fighter jets and 13,102 Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have conducted incursions into Lebanon's skies since 2007.

The Middle East Monitor on Monday said Air Pressure managed to collect and report the data after sourcing it from 243 letters uploaded to the UN's digital library between the years 2006 to 2021, which contained all the radar information such as the time, duration, type and trajectory of each aircraft violation.

It added that those letters were written by Lebanon's permanent representative to the UN and were addressed to the UN Security Council (UNSC).

Air Pressure said in a statement; "The UN Security Council and United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon have been monitoring and recording these violations, and have had clear access and capacity to do this work themselves.

"Instead, by storing the data in a piecemeal and uncoordinated fashion, these institutions have obfuscated the scale of these crimes."

According to the report, the primary reason for the airspace violations was that of mass indiscriminate surveillance, in which the Lebanese population's phone calls and text messages are accessed, and their movements and homes photographed.
