Whoa! Syrian Rebels Target Beirut - Two Grad Rockets Hit Hezbollah Section of City, Four People Wounded

 Two wounded men are treated by their friends after two rockets hit their houses in Beirut

You absolutely gotta love this - Islamic terrorist rebels in Syria are now lobbing rockets INTO Lebanon and two of their Grad rockets, for the first time, actually hit the capital of Beirut and those two rockets landed right in the heart of Hezbollah run southern Beirut wounding four people.

Nasrallah has promised victory in Syria for the Lebanese people...hmmm...I don't seem to remember the Lebanese people saying they had a dog in that fight.

The story comes from The Telegraph.

Two rockets aimed at Hizbollah area of Beirut leaves at least four people wounded

"Two Grad rockets hit the southern suburbs of Beirut. One rocket struck a car showroom where four people were wounded and vehicles were damaged," the source told AFP.

It was the first time the Lebanese capital's southern suburbs have been targeted during the two-year-old conflict in neighbouring Syria, where Hizbollah has thrown its military might into the regime's fight against rebels seeking to topple President Bashar al-Assad.

Sunday's blasts came just hours after Hizbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah vowed "victory" in Syria.

"I say to all the honourable people, to the mujahideen, to the heroes: I have always promised you a victory and now I pledge to you a new one" in Syria, he said at a ceremony marking the 13th anniversary of Israel's military withdrawal from Lebanon.

Nasrallah said Hizbollah would always stand by its ally Assad and his regime, stressing that its own interests were at stake.

The fighting in Lebanon has already spilt over into the country's second city, the northern port of Tripoli, where 30 people have been killed in a week of clashes between pro-Assad Alawites and pro-rebel Sunni Muslims.
