Egypt, Arab League condemn attacks in Syria

May 5, 2013 4:50 P.M. (Updated: May 7, 2013 10:24 A.M.)
CAIRO (AFP) -- Egypt on Sunday condemned reported Israeli airstrikes on Syria, with the Arab League also demanding that the UN Security Council act to stop what it called "Israeli attacks" against the war-torn country.

The Egyptian presidency said in a statement the air strikes "violated international law and principles that will further complicate the situation."

The airstrikes reportedly targeted rockets destined for Lebanon's Hezbollah.

The Arab League, which like Egypt sides with rebels against Syrian President Bashar Assad, demanded the Security Council "act immediately to end Israeli attacks on Syria," which it described as a "dangerous violation of an Arab state's sovereignty."
