BEIRUT, Lebanon ? Lebanese security sources said Israel Air Force drones and jets were crisscrossing the skies above Lebanon's eastern Bekaa Valley on Friday night, near the Hezbollah stronghold of Baalbek.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to release information to reporters, said there had been anti-aircraft fire to drive off the aircraft but no weapons fired by the IAF drones and jet fighters.

The Israel Defense Forces said it would not comment on whether there were over flights, but said Israel had "not attacked Lebanon since the cease-fire."
