Lebanon: We'll fire at Israeli planes

Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Murr said Friday that in another few months, the Lebanese army would be able to fire anti-aircraft missiles at any IAF planes flying over Lebanon.

In an interview with the London-based newspaper Al Hayat, Murr said the army had received clear instructions to fire at any aircraft that violated Lebanese airspace or infiltrated the country's skies without authorization.

He added that the government in Beirut submitted complaints of IAF overflights to the UN on a daily basis.

Murr also said that 8,600 Lebanese troops were currently deployed along the country's border with Syria, where they were successfully preventing any type of smuggling.
