Lebanese President Michel Suleiman called on his country to "stand up to Israel's violation of UN Resolution 1701 - whatever the cost" after clashes erupted Tuesday between IDF and LAF forces at the northern border.

The cause of the conflict was still unclear, but initial reports said the conflict occurred after Israeli soldiers tried to uproot a tree on the Lebanon side of the border.
