Reports concerning the security in the region of Sehbaa in South Lebanon re-emerged, but the residents reassured that the town “will not be another Arsal.”
This Israeli location overlooking the region of Shebaa and the Syrian territories monitors the ongoing battles between the Syrian army and the rebel fighters in the towns of Beit Jinn, Mazraat Beit Jinn, Beit Tima, Beit Saber, Kfarhoz and most importantly Khan al-Sheikh.
However the closest point in these towns to Shebaa is located as far as 20 kilometers.
Despite these battles there, the displacement movement towards Shebaa has stopped, where 7 thousand Syrian refugees have already settled.
The cordon imposed on these villages does not allow the fighters to infiltrate into Lebanon, as the Lebanese army has closed all the crossings allowing access into the Lebanese territories through walking.
