Syrian helicopter gunships killed at least six people Friday when they dropped barrel bombs on the strategic rebel stronghold of Yabroud, close to the Lebanese border, a monitor said.Hezbollah says car bombs used to attack it inside Lebanon originate in the Yabroud area and are driven to their targets via Arsal, a Sunni town where support for the Syrian uprising runs high.In Lebanon, the army said three rockets fired from Syria struck near the towns of Labweh and Nabi Othman, where Hezbollah wields influence, but caused no injuries.More than 140,000 people have been killed in Syria since the start of a March 2011 uprising against the Assad family's 40-year rule.
