Security reports warn that a large number of Nusra Front fighters have infiltrated Lebanon in the last few days; most have been coming from Yabroud and Qalamoun in Syria.The reports said these fighters would likely join certain extremist groups in Lebanon that are plotting several terrorist operations, backed by fundamentalist and Islamist scholars who live abroad.Well-informed sources said a group of fundamentalist fighters were taking refuge in Akkar and would soon go to Syria to support opposition fighters in their uprising against the regime, under the supervision of military trainers from the Free Syrian Army and Syrian officer Hussein Mahhour from Zabadani.
