The deployments were made after four suicide bombers wounded about a dozen people, 18 hours after four similar attacks had killed five and wounded 19 others in the same village. According to the army, two nightime bombers, who had arrived on motorcycles, had blown themselves up outside Mar Elias Church in Al-Qaa.Earlier Monday at around 4:20 a.m. a suicide bomber blew himself up near the residence of a Lebanese national in Al-Qaa.The multiple attacks, involving eight suicide bombers, were the largest yet in the latest bloody spillover of Syria's 5-year-old war into Lebanon.Lebanon has been repeatedly jolted by militant attacks linked to the war in neighboring Syria.
