Lebanon - Oct 5

There have been fierce clashes between the Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah and what is believed to be Sunni militants from the al-Nusra Front in eastern Lebanon. The clashes come after gunmen attacked Hezbollah bases over a wide area from the south in Baalbek to Aslal in the north. Lebanon’s border with Syria is not well-secured. It seems that the escalating situation in Syria will bring neighboring Lebanon into conflict as well. Source: BBC
