Since Hmayed’s killing, troops from Lebanon’s elite Air Assault regiment have deployed around Arsal, manning a checkpoint on the single asphalt road leading to the town, searching cars and checking identifications. Other troops patrol the surrounding mountains, for now effectively sealing off Arsal from the Syrian war.“It’s [[[[[[[a major blow for the Free Syrian Army because that’s where we get our fighters, weapons, ammunition, ]]]]]]]food everything,” says Ahmad, a former law student from the Syrian border town of Qusayr who joined the FSA eight months ago. He spoke to TIME in a safehouse in a village near Arsal.

The army has since intensified its security around the town in an effort to arrest the assailants.[ed notes:after initial arsal incident the future movement tools and even arsal officials claimed that arsal was attacked because they are sunni and that they supported rebels but denied that thy provided weapons to rebels from FSA..there you have it,an admission wich exposes their duplicitous lies..Lebanese army must occupy arsal and eliminate all the terrorists,period.They are arming terrorists,and consequently engaging Lebanon in war from across border....they must be uprooted in my opinion,and Lebanese state and army must act against these elements until they are wiped out...
