Hezbollah, Syrian militants clash in eastern Lebanon

BIERUT – Violent clashes broke out Tuesday between members of the Shiite Hezbollah movement and Syrian militants in eastern Lebanon, a security source has said.

Hezbollah used heavy weapons during the clashes with Syrian militants near the eastern village of Nahle along border with Syria, the source, who requested anonymity, told The Anadolu Agency.

No information is yet available about casualties.

There has been no comment from Lebanese authorities.

Every now and again, clashes break out between Hezbollah – which fights alongside the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad – and militants from the Syrian opposition who are calling for an end to the al-Assad's rule.
