Lebanese army battles Syrian militants near border

Associated Press
Published: 08.04.14, 10:19 / Israel News

Hundreds of Lebanese civilians are fleeing an eastern border town that was overrun by militants from neighboring Syria as Lebanese troops fight to liberate the area.

 

It's the most serious spillover of violence from the civil war in neighboring Syria into tiny Lebanon.

 

The three-day fighting in Arsal has killed at least 11 Lebanese troops so far and 13 others are missing after Syrian militants made a cross-border raid and overran army positions in the area.
