Lebanon has fought to stay neutral in neighboring Syria’s Civil War, while Hezbollah based in Lebanon continues to fight and support the pro-Assad forces. Despite Lebanon’s attempts to stay out of conflict, it continues to be a target for terrorist attacks. The Christian town of Qaa, which was bombed last year, requested security reinforcements after reports that gunmen may have entered. It is unclear why Qaa is being targeted as Lebanon’s Christians have not played a role in Syria’s civil war.
07/27/2017 Lebanon (Al-Arabiya) – Security reinforcements were sent to the Lebanese Christian town of Al-Qaa after reports that gunmen may have entered.
A number of suicide bombers attacked the Lebanese Christian village last year killing a number of people and wounding dozens more.
ISIS was responsible for the bombings in the village of Qaa on Lebanon’s border with Syria.
Lebanon has been repeatedly jolted by militant attacks linked to the war in neighboring Syria, where the powerful Lebanese Shi’ite group Hezbollah is fighting in support of President Bashar al-Assad.
It was not clear why the town had been targeted, as Lebanon’s Christians have not played a role in Syria’s civil war.
