Lebanese President Michel Suleiman sounded a strongly defiant note in reaction to Tuesday's cross-border incident which left three Lebanese soldiers and one Lebanese journalist dead.

Suleiman reportedly exclaimed that his country would "stand up to Israel's violation of UN Resolution 1701 - whatever the cost." The resolution led to a cease-fire which ended the Second Lebanon War in 2006.
