Report: FSA Gunmen Kill Lebanese Man

A Lebanese man was killed and his brother injured after coming under fire by members of the rebel Free Syrian Army in the northeastern border town of al-Tufail, Voice of Lebanon radio (93.3) reported on Wednesday.

VDL said Abdullah Hassan Murad, 45, died while his brother Mamdouh was wounded after FSA gunmen opened fire on them after midnight Wednesday.

The brothers hail from the town of Ham.

The report came a few days after the Lebanese Army said FSA members attacked a Lebanese military post on Friday night also near the northeastern border with Syria.

It said in a communique that for the second time in less than a week, FSA gunmen entered Lebanese territory through the outskirts of Arsal, where they attacked the Army post.

The military sent reinforcements to the area after the incident and vowed to prevent the use of Lebanese territory to implicate Lebanon in the regional turmoil.
