Reports from Lebanon's Bekaa Valley indicate that Syrian helicopters hovered over the Lebanese side of the border on Sunday.
Syrian helicopters on Sunday hovered over the outskirts of the Bekaa border town of Arsal before returning to the Syrian airspace, Future News TV reported.

For its part, Lebanon’s state-run National News Agency said Syrian military aircraft flew over Syria’s border with Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley. It did not elaborate.

On Tuesday, Defense Minister Fayez Ghosn warned that al-Qaida members have entered Lebanon through Arsal “under the guise of being members of the Syrian opposition,” noting that he will raise the issue in cabinet.

During a meeting at his office with a delegation of high-ranking Lebanese army officers, Ghosn said: “We have information that certain operations are taking place at some illegal border crossings, especially in Arsal, where weapons and some al-Qaida terrorist elements are entering (the country) under the guise of being members of the Syrian opposition.”
