Report: Hezbollah, Assad try to expand Syrian civil war into Lebanon

Hezbollah and Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime are trying to expand the theater of the Syrian conflict into Lebanon as the rebel forces continue to advance, according to sources quoted by the Now Lebanon website.

“[Syrian] President Bashar Assad’s regime and Hezbollah now realize that it is impossible for them to regain control over Syria, therefore they are looking to cancel Lebanon’s parliamentary elections and cause security instability in Tripoli, Sidon, and other regions,” sources told Now.

By canceling the current elections, the Hezbollah controlled government would be able to stay in power until the Syrian conflict dies down according to Lebanese Future bloc MP Ammar Houri, who was speaking on Voice of Lebanon radio on Sunday as reported by the Now Lebanon website on Sunday.
