In recent months, since Hezbollah announced its intentions to send out additional troops into Syria to aid President Bashar Assad's regime, several harsh attacks struck Lebanon.


Dozens of people were killed and hundreds were injured in these attacks, which according to estimates were carried out by Sunni organizations as revenge for Hezbollah's involvement in the Syrian civil war.
