Last year there was a strong spike in tension between the Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah and Israel, which continuously crosses Lebanese airspace, although in recent months the border has remained relatively calm.

The Lebanon and its neighbor Israel do not maintain diplomatic relations; They are formally at war and, to this day, after several armed conflicts, they have not yet established a permanent ceasefire.

This action comes amid the worst escalation of violence in the last seven years between Palestinians and Israelis that has claimed the lives of at least 87 Palestinians, with several hundred injured and strong disturbances in the streets, which are already spreading through different cities.
