Lebanese flood into Syria

17,000 Lebanese have flooded through the Masnaa border crossing on the main Beirut-Damascus highway today.

Israel bombed the main highway, so many have had to find back routes.

Thousands of foreigners have also been fleeing into Damascus. Beirut, and the Lebanese mountains are popular holiday destinations for Gulf Arabs.

Syrians are recieving them with open arms .. yet they still curse the syrians and blame them for anything and everything thats wrong in their country
