Officials: Lebanese forces fire on Syrian planes

Published: 12.30.13, 15:49 / Israel News

Lebanese forces fired on Syrian aircraft that violated the country's airspace on Monday, the first time they have done so since Syria's uprising broke out three years ago, said security officials.

 

The move suggests Beirut is trying to enforce greater respect for its borders in the hopes of slowing the expansion of the conflict into Lebanon, where it has exacerbated sectarian tensions and prompted shadowy groups to conduct attacks that have killed dozens this year. (AP)
