BEIRUT: Grand Mufti Mohammad Rashid Qabbani slammed Friday a recent Israeli airstrike on a military target in Syria, a statement by Dar al-Fatwa said.

“Israel has repeatedly violated our Arab land in Palestine and now it has taken advantage of the tragic situation of the Syrian people to launch a treacherous aggression against another Arab country,” the mufti said.

Foreign officials and Syrian state TV said Wednesday Israel had conducted a rare airstrike on a military target inside Syria.

The Syrian Army denied claims that the strike had targeted a convoy heading from Syria to Lebanon.

The mufti warned Friday Arabs and Muslims throughout the world over Israel’s intentions and any possible future aggression against Lebanon’s neighbor.

“Arabs and Muslims should be careful about Israel’s intentions and its future plans for attacking Syria or other Arab countries under different pretexts such as setting for a new Middle East,” said the mufti.

The attack against Syria was condemned by Lebanese groups, mainly Hezbollah, the Amal Movement, head of the Future parliamentary bloc MP Fouad Siniora and President Michel Sleiman.
