US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns condemned Hezbollah's actions in Syria "in the strongest terms" and said they jeopardized Lebanon as well. He also promised increased US support for the Lebanese Army. Sources say fugitive Sunni leader Sheikh Ahmad Assir was on Hezbollah's hit list before his followers clashed with the Lebanese Army; the Al-Jamaa al-Islamiya is now attempting to represent Sunni interests in Sidon.
