The Free Syrian Army on Tuesday threatened to carry out attacks against Hezbollah inside Lebanon, The Washington Post reported.

The threats came after several days of clashes between the Syrian rebels and Hezbollah fighters around Qusayr, a Syrian town on the Lebanese border.

According to the Washington Post report, the threat specifically addresses Hezbollah shelling of rebel groups from Hermel in northern Lebanon.

“If the Hezbollah shelling on the Syrian land, on the villages and unarmed civilians, from inside the Lebanese land does not stop in the next 48 hours from the release of this statement, we will take matters in our own hands to respond to the source of the shooting and stop it inside Lebanese territory,” a statement from the Free Syrian Army said.
