Syrian President Bashar Assad told Lebanese President Michel Suleiman that Syria would stand behind Lebanon and provide any necessary support after a cross-border fire incident between Israeli and Lebanese troops on Tuesday, the Syrian state news agency SANA reported.

The IDF fire "proves once again that Israel is constantly working to destabilize security in Lebanon and the region," SANA reported Assad as saying.
