BEKAA, Lebanon: Dozens of Syrian rebels have fled to Lebanon over the past two days as a result of a military crackdown by the Syrian army in the province of Homs, a Lebanese security source said Tuesday.

“Dozens of opposition gunmen have entered the country through Mashareeh al-Qaa in the past two days since the beginning of the military operation in Qusair [Homs province],” said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Hezbollah’s Al-Manar reported that a Syrian army crackdown in Qusair forced “hundreds” of rebels to flee into Lebanon.

Meanwhile, the National News Ageny said that a large number of Syrians fled to Lebanon through its northeastern border as a result of a Syrian army drive to pursue the rebels.

The NNA said the Syrians were fleeing through to Mashareeh al-Qaa and that the Lebanese Army beefed up its presence along the border.
