Syrian Rebels: Conflict With Hezbollah Has Now Grown Into Hostility Against All Of Lebanon


NOW – “The Free Syrian Amy said that the conflict they have with Hezbollah, which is allegedly fighting against them in Syria, has now grown into hostility against all of Lebanon.

‘[Our problem] today has become with Lebanon as a state, it is no longer solely with Hezbollah. It has… turned into an Arab, regional and international issue,’ the Anadolu Turkish news agency quoted the FSA as saying in a statement released on Tuesday evening.

The statement also warned that the ‘future’ of the Lebanese-Syrian border ‘is at risk… in case the attacks on Syrian territory and civilians do not stop.’

The FSA fired further accusations against Hezbollah, claiming that the Lebanese Shiite party is to send ‘between four and five thousand fighters’ to Syrian territory near Homs during the upcoming days.

The rebels also claimed that on Sunday, Hezbollah trained several of its members near the Lebanese town of Mashghara in West Beqaa ‘in order to send new [militants] to fight on Syrian soil.’

The statement added that the Shiite party established monitoring sites near Syrian border towns in an attempt to ‘control the international Damascus-Homs Highway.’

Moreover, the statement accused Hezbollah of carrying out ‘displacements and sectarian cleansing in a number of border towns… and burning many houses.'” Read more.
