Rebels Target Hezbollah in War Against Assad


Well this is an interesting turn of events.
Check it out:

In an apparent response to a pledge of support by Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah for the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad, Syrian rebels targeted a Hizbullah stronghold in Beirut, Lebanon on Sunday, widening the international scope of the Syrian civil war.

According to Reuters, the first Syrian rebel attack to have allegedly targeted Hezbollah took place on May 26, when two rockets “hit a Shi’ite Muslim district in Beirut.”

One of the rockets landed “in a car sales yard next to a busy road junction in south Beirut’s Chiah neighborhood.” The second rocket “struck an apartment several hundred meters away.”

These strikes come just after the head of Nasrallah promised to stand by the embattkes Syrian government in the ongoing conflict that has split that country asunder for two years.
