Assad: We will stand by Lebanon if attacked by Israel

(HAARETZ|DPA) — Syrian President Bashar Assad on Sunday vowed to stand by Lebanon’ side against any Israeli “aggression,” in an escalating war of words between Damascus and Jerusalem.

Assad made the remark to the speaker of the Lebanese Parliament, Nabih Beri, in Damascus, according to the official Syrian news agency, Sana.

Assad’s statement followed that of Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mualem, who last Wednesday warned that all-out war would result if Israel “starts a war in Southern Lebanon or Syria.”
