UN has asked Israel to stop overflights.
"We have protested to the Israeli army against the air violations and we have asked that they be stopped," Bouziane said on Tuesday.
The overflights "do not only constitute a violation to Lebanese sovereignty, but also to (UN Security Council) Resolution 1701... and they create a tense atmosphere," she added.
She pointed out that they had already submitted reports to the UN Security Council on the overflights.
The UN has repeatedly denounced Israel's overflights as undermining the credibility of UN peacekeepers posted in south Lebanon and efforts to stabilize the region.
