Hezbollah tightens grip on Lebanese border town with Syria

Published: 03.18.14, 11:24 / Israel News

BEIRUT - A local Lebanese official says gunmen from the militant Shiite group Hezbollah and Shiite residents have tightened their chokehold on a Sunni town near the Syrian border.

 

The standoff around the eastern Lebanese town of Arsal is the latest in an ever-growing spillover of the Syrian conflict into its smaller neighbor.

 

Ahmad Fliti, the deputy mayor of Arsal, says Shiite gunmen set up roadblocks and closed off the road connecting the town to the rest of Lebanon, angry over recent rocket attacks and a car bombing by blamed on Sunni militants. (AP)
