Following intense fighting along Lebanon's eastern border that pitted Syrian troops, backed by Hezbollah, against Nusra Front fighters, all eyes are now on the Bekaa Valley and the mountainous area extending from the outskirts of Syria's Qalamoun region to the Lebanese border town of Arsal.Over the weekend, the Lebanese Army deployed at 100 new points in the Baalbek-Hermel villages of Al-Qaa, Ras Baalbek, Fakiha, Meqraq, Labweh, Swanieh, Nahleh, Younin, Maqneh, Bizalieh, Nabi Othman and Arsal. The Syrian army, with the support of Hezbollah, has been able to contain a number of strategic points for rebels, more than 3,000 of whom were preparing a dangerous operation against Lebanese villages known as "Laylat al-Qadr" (Night of Power). By aiding Hezbollah and Lebanese state authorities, the West is trying to maintain stability in the country, the source said.
