500 Syrian army defectors in north Lebanon, report says

Members of the Free Syrian Army stand in the valley near the village of Ain al-Baida, in the Idlib province of Syria, not far from the Turkish border. A rebel group of Syrian defectors reportedly took position against the Syrian Army along the Turkish border. Army defectors killed at least eight Syrian troops Wednesday in an act of revenge after security forces shot dead five civilians, activists said, in the second such insurgent attack in as many days.
