Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Saturday pledged his country's help for Lebanon which is under continued attacks by Israel, the official SANA news agency reported.
In a telephone conversation with Lebanese President Emile Lahoud, Assad said that Syria would make an all-out effort to help Lebanon.
Assad also expressed solidarity with the Lebanese people, SANA said.
It was the first comment by Assad since Israel launched attacks on Lebanese targets on Wednesday after Lebanese Hezbollah captured two Israeli soldiers and killed eight others in a cross-border operation.
Israel has imposed a sea, air and land blockade of Lebanon, targeting bridges, roads and Beirut International Airport and killing dozens of civilians.
