GAZA - 11 September 2017: Israeli aircraft reportedly broke the sound barrier while flying over Sidon in Lebanon on Sunday, causing panic in the city below, according to Lebanese media.

The sonic boom reportedly caused by the Israeli sorties caused glass in buildings below to shatter, while a woman passed out in Sidon's market, Ynet reported.

Lebanese media showed images of a store in Sidon's Old City where part of the ceiling collapsed as a result of the Israeli jets flying overhead.

Lebanese security officials told a Hezbollah-affiliated radio station the Israeli sorties were part of a large-scale training exercise the Israeli army is currently holding in northern Israel meant to prepare for a future war with Hezbollah.
