Lebanon sends aid to cut-off village near Syria

Published: 04.22.14, 14:59 / Israel News

BEIRUT - A Lebanese army official said Tuesday the military is delivering aid to an isolated village along Syria's border that was bombed by President Bashar Assad's forces.


The Lebanese village of Tfail lies on a promontory surrounded on three sides by Syrian territory.


Lebanese media said Syrian government forces bombed Tfail last week. It wasn't clear if there were casualties among the 3,000 Lebanese residents and 5,000 Syrian refugees in Tfail.


The army official says the Iranian-backed Lebanese militant Hezbollah group was occasionally blocking the only access road to Tfail, severing it from the rest of Lebanon. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak to media. (AP)
