Syria fighting spreads to Lebanon
Sunday 02 June 2013
Hezbollah fighters and Syrian rebels have exchanged fire in a remote area of eastern Lebanon overnight, leading to a number of deaths on both sides, according to a Lebanese security official
Hezbollah and Syria's rebels fight on opposite sides in Syria, but have rarely clashed on Lebanese territory.
The official said that members of Hezbollah appear to have ambushed and encircled a group of Syrian rebels along with some Lebanese fighters whom they suspected of rocketing Lebanon's Baalbek region a day earlier.
He said there were unconfirmed reports that a Hezbollah fighter and a number of Syrian rebels were killed.
The clashes took place in a remote area near Syria.
