ARSAL, Lebanon - 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 Syrian President Bashar 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.
