The Lebanese Army Intelligence apprehended seven Syrian nationals while trying to infiltrate illegally into Lebanese territories by evading checkpoints.

According to the Central News Agency, the seven Syrians were trying to enter the southern border town of Shebaa illegally by dodging army checkpoints that are distributed in nearby areas.

A security source told the news agency that the army intelligence ambushed a group of Syrians, which included Syrian opposition gunmen.

Preliminary investigations revealed that another group of suspects escaped the ambush while several gunmen retreated.

The sources said that the precautionary measures in the area aim at restricting the entrance to Lebanon through army checkpoints after thousands of Syrians entered Lebanon via illegal crossings.

The town of Shebaa has seen a massive influx of refugees.

no titan, an assassination of an m8 figure wouldnt cause strife because m8 people wouldnt accuse m14 of it.

m14 play into the game of israel because they systematically jump to accusing fellow lebanese without any proof.

Hezbollah always claims they're being framed to cause strife, that's why they're doing it. Why is it always M14 figures being killed? Why is it anti-Syria journalists like Tueni and Kassir being killed? I don't see al-Akhbar journalists being blown up the last time I checked.
