BEIRUT: Syria’s Foreign Ministry denied Tuesday aircraft had recently bombed locations in east Lebanon, SANA reported.

"Lebanese, Arab and international media circulated news about Syrian fighter jets dropping bombs inside Lebanese territory ... the [Foreign] Ministry affirms that there is absolutely no truth to this,” the state-run Syrian news agency quoted a high-ranking official at the Foreign Ministry as saying.

The source added that the Ministry emphasized Syria’s respect for Lebanon’s sovereignty as well as its “commitment to the security and stability of sisterly Lebanon."
