Free Syrian Army Threatens to Shell Hizbullah

The rebel Free Syrian Army on Wednesday threatened to shell positions of Hizbullah in neighboring Lebanon after accusing it of firing across the border into territory it controls.

"In the past week... Hizbullah has been shelling into villages around Qusayr from Lebanese territory, and that we cannot accept," General Selim Idriss, the FSA's chief of staff, told AFP on the phone, adding that the rebels have given Hizbullah a 48-hour deadline to stop the attacks.
