BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – The Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil issued a statement on Wednesday that slammed the Israeli airstrikes on Syria this week.

In his short statement, Bassil denounced the airstrikes by the Israeli Air Force, while underlining “Syria’s legitimate right to defend its land and sovereignty.”

“The Foreign Ministry also calls on the international community and the UN Security Council to denounce these raids, as well as Israeli warplanes’ breach of Lebanese airspace to carry out attacks on a brotherly country, in flagrant violation of UN resolution 1701,” the statement read.

“Minister of Foreign Affairs Gebran Bassil instructed the Permanent Representative of Lebanon to the UN to file a complaint to the Security Council against the dangerous Israeli violations threatening stability in the region,” statement concluded.
