Syrian war spills into Lebanon as rockets hit Hezbollah’s heartland



Bahrain wants Nasrallah stopped, pro-Assad forces now control Qusayr

A SHI’ITE Muslim district of Beirut was yesterday hit by two rockets, driving home the risk of spillover from Syria’s civil war just after the head of Lebanese Shi’ite militant Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, said the group would keep fighting on the Syrian government’s side until victory.

A report by Reuters indicated that it was the first attack to apparently target Hezbollah’s stronghold in the south of the Lebanese capital since the outbreak of the two-year conflict in neighbouring Syria.

However, another report by Agence France Presse (AFP) stated Sunday that Syrian regime forces backed by fighters of Hezbollah control 80 per cent of the strategic town of Qusayr, quoting a source close to the Lebanese Shiite movement.

“We still have to take another 20 per cent of Qusayr, since we took 10 per cent yesterday and the rest was already in our hands,” the source said, declining to be named.

In addition, “the main road between Baalbek and Homs has been secured,” he said, referring to a vital artery through which the powerful Shiite movement sends men and equipment to Syria.

In another development, Bahrain’s Foreign Minister, Sheikh Khaled al-Khalifa, said Sunday that the leader of Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah is a “terrorist” who must be stopped.

“Terrorist Nasrallah has declared war on his nation,” said Sheikh Khaled al-Khalifa on his Twitter account.

“Stopping him and rescuing Lebanon from his grip is a national and religious duty for all of us,” he said.
