Israel denies report jets fired over German ship
JERUSALEM, Oct 26: Israel denied a German newspaper report that two Israeli air force planes flew over a German navy vessel patrolling Lebanon's coast, fired twice and activated anti-missile countermeasures.
''There was no such incident,'' an Israeli military spokeswoman said.
Der Tagesspiegel daily quoted a German junior defence minister as telling a parliamentary panel about the incident, without saying when or why it had happened. Germany's Defence Ministry confirmed the incident took place but did not give details.
