BEIRUT, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- The Lebanese Army Command said Saturday that a Free Syrian Army unit infiltrated into the Lebanese border town of Arsal Friday night.

The Army Command said no one was injured in the attack, stressing that it "will not allow any sides to use Lebanese territory to drag Lebanon towards the developments of neighboring countries."

It renewed its determination "to defend Lebanese territories and confront any violations regardless of which side is behind it. "

The army sent reinforcements to Arsal to control the situation and pursue the assailants, who fled to nearby mountainous regions and border villages.
