Hezbollah fighters executed wounded Syrian rebels, shows video
Thursday October 10, 2013 10:17 PM, News Network

A video posted on the internet shows members of Lebanon's Hezbollah militia executing wounded Syrian rebels who were captured when the Syrian town of al-Qusair was recaptured in June by the Syrian regime forces backed by Hezbollah's army, Al Arabiya reported.

The battle over al-Qusair marked the first publically declared engagement of Hezbollah in the Syrian conflict, with group's leader Hassan Nasrallah vowing not to allow Syrian rebels take Syrian towns bordering Lebanon, Al Arabiya said in its report published today.

The video is expected to revive tensions in Lebanon between the Shiite Hezbollah and Sunni Islamists supporting the Syrian uprising.

Lebanese journalist Lokman Sleem said the video further indicts Hezbollah and "confirms that the group's intervention in Syria wasn't in the name of Allah but in the name of Iran and its interests."
