Lebanon: Hezbollah Goes On Full Alert After Three Members Killed By Syrian Rebels

Ya Libnan – “Three Hezbollah members were killed on Wednesday in an attack by the Islamist al-Nusra Front in a border town between Lebanon and Syria, the Turkish state-run Anadolu agency reported…

‘The attack targeted a Hezbollah patrol in (the Bekaa border town of) Zeita, killing three of the party’s members,’ informed sources told Anadolu.

The sources revealed: ‘The party had an agreement with the Free Syria Army to neutralize these towns from the ongoing Syrian conflict’. ‘But Hezbollah has since the attack decided to deploy members in eight frontier villages’…

Hezbollah has announced that its ranks are now on full alert in eight Lebanese-Syrian border towns following an attack that was carried out by Syria’s Al-Nusra Front against a Hezbollah patrol, Turkish Anadolu news agency reported on Wednesday.

Anadolu also quoted its sources as saying that ‘thirteen Al-Nusra Front members attacked a Hezbollah patrol in the Lebanese southern town of Zeita which led to the death of three of the Shiite group’s members.’

Hezbollah has been supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad ever since the uprising began in March 2011, even though the group supported revolts in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Bahrain. The group says it is backing the Syrian regime because of its support for the anti-Israel resistance movements in Lebanon and Palestine and because it is willing to implement political reforms.
