Syrian jet fires missile onto Lebanese territory

Published: 04.03.13, 12:55 / Israel News

A Syrian jet flew 20 km (12 miles) into Lebanon and fired a missile at the outskirts of the border town of Arsal on Wednesday but caused no casualties, witnesses said.


Forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad have fired mortars into and occasionally entered Lebanese territory in pursuit of rebels groups. They threatened air strikes in Lebanon last month. When a Syrian jet bombed Lebanese territory in mid-March, Lebanese President Michel Suleiman called it an "unacceptable violation" of Lebanese sovereignty. (Reuters)
