Syrian warplanes raided on Monday the outskirts of the border town of Arsal in northern Bekaa with several missiles.

The National News Agency reported that the area of Wadi Hmeid on the outskirts of Arsal was targeted with four missiles.

Voice of Lebanon radio (93.3) said that the Syrian regime hit the areas of al-Ajram and Wadi al-Zaarour with six missiles.

The radio station said that the warplanes targeted Syrian opposition groups.

Later, the NNA reported that a rocket fired from the Eastern Mountain Range (on the Lebanese-Syrian border) landed in the Bekaa town of Nabi Othman.

Another rocket targeted the international highway that links northern Bekaa with the Syrian town of Homs.

The Army Command said in a statement that two rockets hit the public road between the towns of al-Labweh and al-Nabi Othman, lightly wounding a citizen and damaging a number of shops.

The mountainous area has long been a smuggling haven, with multiple routes into Syria that have been used since the conflict began in March 2011 to transport weapons and fighters.

I wonder if Bassil is still gathering information about Syrian violations of Lebanon's sovereignty. He disobeyed President Suleiman orders on many occasions and failed to file a complaint with the U.N. The terror party's chief omitted to talk about Syrian violations in his speech of yesterday.

Where is the bloody Islamic Resistance to protect Lebanon from foreign aggression ?

Where are M8 traitors to cheer Syrian aggressions on Lebanese SOVEREIGN SOIL ?

Where is Gebran Bassil, the Traitor in Law, to file a complaint for the thousandth aggression from Syria's Bachar ?

Syria has breached our sovereignty more times than Israel, has murdered more lebanese than Israel and M8 traitors are still licking their baasses !

I believe that yesterday we should have sent a memo to the Syrian gov't telling them that any shelling on our land is an act of war and will be responded to as such. I know this won't happen. Additionally we should immediately exterminate any armed Syrian occupation group in Lebanon. Next any other armed palestinian group outside of camps. Then disarm all Palestinian camps. Then develop a MOU between M8 and M14 on both anti Syrian regime and Israeli occupation. Then we can figure out a plan with HA arms and HA falling under president. You can try to shove Geagea down their throats, but given the HA might you are not going to beat them that way. And no Aoun is not the answer. I truly believe the above with the right leader would gain popular support.
