The Lebanese military has deployed reinforcements to the Arsal region, near the border with Syria, after Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebels attacked a military post near the border, sparking a brief gunbattle before fleeing into the mountains.
The statement from the Lebanese Army says that this was the “second time in under a week” that a unit from the FSA, made up chiefly of Syrian military defectors, has crossed the border into the territory.
No casualties were reported in the initial clash, and the military says that they have deployed troops into the mountainous region along the border to try to track down the fighters responsible for the attack.
As fighting in Syria’s civil war has gotten close to the borders with Lebanon and Turkey, the rebels have regularly crossed the border in an attempt to outflank the Syrian military, which could not pursue them without creating an international incident.

All options are on the table, every imaginable atrocity, inhuman acts, all kind of wrong doings that one barbarian or in this case these "rebels" can think of is a opportunity to continue this war even widding it to Lebanon or turky. By themselves, these people are nobody, but as long as they are supported by eu, Saudis, UAE, and us governments, getting false information that they are winning and that they are about to overthrowe the syriangoverment, they get this psychological feeling of power adding to their stupidity continuing this war. We said that from day one that this war is going to be long one, the regime of Sarkozi has changed to a Social Democracy, Swiss made grenades are used, sooner or later you will find a Swedish made weapon among other in hand of these people, it's all about widdning and prolonging this war, because barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, the english and Swedish neo liberal fascism have decided for Syrian people to suffer, be ause the kingdom tyrants of Sweden an England have sai so, this is the modernised version of the "west democracy" which not only slaving their own people but others needs to suffer as well, all this is because of the fact that Saudis are promissed to be protected if they give the oil to west while west becoms obligated to protect these feudal regimes.
It's surprising to me that things are still a mess over there, I remember reading this article when it happened and thinking it would all cool down in a month or two…
I think we have bigger problems that we should take care of, than fighting other poor nations for their natural resources. But the truth is, everyone only cares about himself… Always had and always will!
Wars have been, are and always will be a part of our history as people, but it seems like in the last few years there have been many initiations, attacks and conflicts all over the world and you can clearly see this has repercursions on how people from different countries relate
if the actual armies fighting wasn't enough….the rebels have to give everyone a piece of their minds as well. I think the violence over there has no limit and I don;t see how or when things will end
We should just let it go already and understand that it's not in our power to do anything. Maybe if people would stop enrolling, that would be a start
War is never the solution!
Things will never be as they were in Syria or any other country affected by war
I think what's happening over there is heartbreaking and against human rights.
