Residents Flee as Heavy Syrian Gunfire Targets al-Abboudiyeh

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Heavy gunfire from Syria on Monday targeted the Akkar border town of al-Abboudiyeh, forcing residents to flee the area en masse.

"Two shells fired from Syria fell on al-Abboudiyeh and Hakr Janin while other towns are being targeted by heavy gunfire," Radio Voice of Lebanon (93.3) reported.

Meanwhile, al-Manar television said the Lebanese army deployed heavily in the town's outskirts “after an armed group opened fire from the Syrian side of the border.”

Earlier on Monday, state-run National News Agency said volleys of machinegun fire hit the Lebanese territory along the northern border, from al-Abboudiyeh to Hakr Janin.

We now wait for Turkey to fire back. Our government is simply impotent.

That is the same area Hizbcocaine is fighting too and shelling from the Lebanese side of the border. Before Syria and Hizbcocaine would not allow the Lebanese army there. Now they decided to put the army there heavily? Something smells here. Of course Manar is just a Persian news outlet. The army should be careful up there. My guess is that Hizb and Syria might get some of them killed by "armed groups" in order to get Lebanon on the side of ASSad.

The army is a mashkara , I'm not talking about the foot soldiers but the leadership and command. Obviously Syria has a lot of high ranking government and security officials on it's payroll. Lebanon needs a coup or something because unfortunately, most of the big players are corrupt bastards that serve there masters in Tehran and Damascus

Lebanon should set up detention camps for terrorists crossing back and forth from and into Syria and not refugee camps.

Make Lebanon having a real army and not hizbullah & Co militias and you could mediate on the syrian border as well
