JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Lebanese army fired on at least four Israel Air Force planes flying over southern Lebanon.

Lebanese news media reported Wednesday that the anti-aircraft fire forced the Israeli planes to return to Israel, according to Ha’aretz.

Also Wednesday, the Lebanese government agreed to allow the terrorist organization Hezbollah to keep its weapons, in violation of the United Nations resolution that ended the 2006 Second Lebanon War.

Hezbollah reportedly has thousands of rockets and explosives hidden in southern Lebanon.
