The Israeli government has repeatedly stated that the IDF has a right to maintain freedom of action against Iran and the Lebanon-based movement Hezbollah, and therefore also to send drones across the region.
At the same time, Lebanon has repeatedly objected to Israeli operations in its airspace, stating that these violate the country’s sovereignty and UN Security Council Resolution 1701.
