A Syrian rebel unit has claimed responsibility in a video for killing four Shi'ite men in Lebanon this week as Syria's civil war spills into its smaller, religiously divided neighbor.
In the video, posted on Tuesday by a group calling itself the "Syrian Mujahideen Unit," a fighter says his brigade killed the four men as they were trying to enter Syria.He said they were members of Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shi'ite militant group that has actively helped Syrian President Bashar Assad in his fight against a mostly Sunni Muslim revolt.
Another video posted by the same group showed the four men's identification cards as well as two assault rifles and two pistols the Syrian rebels say they found on the men.
