Hezbollah fighters killed in clash on Syria-Lebanon border
« on: July 14, 2014, 05:07:18 AM »
(Reuters) - Seven fighters from the Lebanese group Hezbollah were killed in fighting with Sunni Islamist insurgents in a mountainous area on the Syria-Lebanon border in which at least 16 rebels were also killed, a monitoring group reported on Monday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition-affiliated watchdog, said a further 31 fighters from Hezbollah had been wounded in the fighting in the border area between Ras al-Maara in Syria and Arsal in northeast Lebanon.

There was no immediate comment from Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed Shi'ite Islamist group whose fighters have been aiding Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian civil war.
