Lebanon border area mired in Syrian conflict

Published: 04.22.13, 00:14 / Israel News

Syrian troops and Lebanese Shiite militias attacked rebel-held areas on the two countries' border on Sunday, in the heaviest clashes of Syria's civil war in the strategic region, Lebanese and Syrian sources said.


At least two towns held by Sunni Islamist rebels in the al-Qusair region near the Orontes River were overrun after sectarian clashes escalated early last week, threatening to bring in Iranian-backed Hezbollah openly into the battle, the sources said. (Reuters)
