Syrian troops seized control Monday of a village near the strategic rebel bastion of Yabroud as they pushed closer to the town near the border with Lebanon, state television said.The Syrian army has used the siege tactic in several towns and cities from the onset of the nearly three-year war that has now killed an estimated 140,000 people.Hezbollah is fighting to try to cut off the road linking Yabroud to Arsal in eastern Lebanon, whose population supports the Syrian revolt.In spring 2013, Hezbollah acknowledged sending fighters into Syria to support the Syrian army, exacerbating divisions in Lebanon between pro and anti-Damascus camps.On Monday, four people were injured when five rockets launched from Syria hit a Hezbollah-dominated area of eastern Lebanon, a security source told AFP.
