    Israeli defense personnel are watching closely as Syrian gunmen begin to carry their battle into Lebanese territory.

    Earlier this month, the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee issued an authorization for a call up for as many as 22 IDF battalions to guard the northern and southern fronts after hearing testimony from security officials. Almost immediately, six battalions were activated.

    Pro and anti-Syrian factions within the Lebanese population clashed in the streets of the Bab al-Tebbaneh neighborhood of Tripoli on Monday, firing assault rifles and rocket propelled grenades (RPGs).

    At least five were killed and 100 wounded by the third day of sectarian violence in Lebanon's second-largest city.

    The Lebanese army did nothing to interfere with the violence, instead taking a position several hundred meters away, according to a reporter for the Associated Press.

    Sunni Muslims supporting the rebels trying to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad battled against pro-Assad members of Lebanon's small Alawite sect, one related to Shi'ite Islam.

    Funny....no mention of fighting spreading in Lebanon on any of the so called news networks here at home. Not one mention on any of them. America ignores the reality of the world around it at our own peril. We need to stop the "everything is fine go out and spend spend spend"...I mean the world is falling apart and it's right on our doorstep.
