On Wednesday, the so called Free Syrian Army claimed that the Lebanese resistance movement had shelled militant strongholds near the city of Qusayr in Syria’s Homs province.
The militants say they have given Hezbollah 48 hours to halt the alleged shelling, threatening to attack after two days.
Reports say Hezbollah has rejected the allegations.
The turmoil in Syria began nearly two years ago.
On February 18, Syrian soldiers killed dozens of terrorists during mop-up operations on the outskirts of the capital, Damascus.
Syria’s Ambassador to Lebanon Ali Abdul Karim Ali said on the same day that Hezbollah was not assisting the Syrian army in the fight against the US-backed terrorists.
Meanwhile, the al-Nusra group, which is fighting against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, is said to have been smuggling weapons into Syria from Lebanon. The group is also said to have been involved in many atrocities committed in Syria.
A recent UN report revealed that terrorists from nearly 30 countries have infiltrated into Syria to fight against the Syrian government.

Obama’s secret order
Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government. Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad. C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

Israel Presses EU to Place Hezbollah on Terror List
Israel’s Home Front Minister Avi Dichter had arrived in France on Tuesday, 19 February 2013, in an attempt to convince the EU to categorize Hezbollah as a ‘terrorist organization’.
“Hezbollah is Israel’s eternal foe, and is the ally of Syria and Iran, and there is no question that they are behind the attacks that have occurred over the past few decades,” Dichter said in media statements.
“The European debate over whether Hezbollah is a terrorist organization or not,” he added sarcastically, “is like debating whether Paris is located in France on not.”
“What upsets me most,” he continued, “is the distinction being made between [Hezbollah’s] military and political wings. This is a farce in and of itself.”
Dichter insisted that Europe is a key source of funding for Hezbollah, and if the party’s covert channels of collecting money on the continent are blocked, it will inevitably face a financial crisis.
He dismissed the notion that placing Hezbollah on the terrorism list could further destabilize Lebanon, noting that the country “is already beset by many problems,” so such a step will not add that much to its troubles.
