An Iranian lawmaker says violation of the airspace and territorial waters of the regional countries by the Zionist regime of Israel shows that international laws have turned into a tool in the hands of Tel Aviv.

“Any violation of the skies, territorial waters and lands of an independent country by another is considered a prohibited act by international laws and conventions...,” Hossein Mozaffar said on Saturday.
Referring to the regular violation of the Lebanese airspace by the Israeli aircraft, the lawmaker pointed out that Tel Aviv’s moves are against UN Security Council resolutions.
“By violating the [United Nations] Security Council Resolution 1701, the Zionist regime [of Israel] crosses into the Lebanese airspace on a daily basis and according to statistics, it has violated this country’s airspace more than 8,000 times since 2006...,” the lawmaker noted.
Israel violates Lebanon’s airspace on an almost daily basis, claiming the flights serve surveillance purposes.
Lebanon’s government, the Hezbollah resistance movement, and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) have repeatedly condemned the overflights, saying they are in clear violation of UN Resolution 1701 and the country’s sovereignty.
UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the war of aggression Israel launched against Lebanon in 2006, calls on Israel to respect Lebanon’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
