BEIRUT: President Michel Sleiman sent Thursday a memorandum to the Arab League detailing violations to Lebanese territory by rival sides in Syria, two days after the Lebanese leader sent a similar document to the United Nations, a statement from the president's office said.

The statement said that Sleiman delivered the document, detailing violations to Lebanese territories from different warring sides in Syria, to Lebanon’s Arab League ambassador, Abdel-Rahman Solh, and asked the official to deliver the memo to the League’s chief Nabil Al-Arabi.

The memo, addressed to Al-Arabi, urges the League to take steps to ensure the violations to Lebanese territory come to a stop.

The document calls on the League to urge all sides fighting in Syria to respect Lebanon’s sovereignty and for the rivals not to take any hostile act against the northern and eastern borders of the country.

Violations from the Syrian side of the border with Lebanon have been frequent leading in some instances to loss of life and material damages.

The president delivered a similar memo Tuesday to the United Nations.
