Syrian army ambush kills 17 Lebanese

Syrian rebel sources report at least 17 Lebanese civilians in an ambush on the Lebanese border Friday. Those sources also claim that Hizballah units had taken over six Syrian villages and small towns along the Lebanese border to help the Syrian army put a stop to the influx of smuggled fighters and arms for the rebel cause from Lebanon.
Neither report is independently confirmed.
