CAIRO, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- The Arab League on Thursday warned that the ongoing border tension between Lebanon and Israel could get out of control.
"The Arab League voices concerns regarding the rising escalations at the Israeli-Lebanese borders," the pan-Arab body said in a statement.
Lebanon has been passing through a difficult time and couldn't endure more tensions, it added, noting that the practices of the Israeli new government in southern Lebanon are meant to display its forces.
The Arab League called on the parties concerned in Lebanon to exercise self-restraint to prevent chaos, calling on the international community to help Lebanon tackle its political stalemate and unprecedented economic problems.
Israeli war jets struck rocket launch sites in southern Lebanon on Thursday in response to an earlier rockets' attack from Lebanon.
