Hezbollah Advances in Syria, Frail in Lebanon

If the capture of Yabroud is to be described as a victory for anyone, it would be for Hizbollah, not the regime it is propping up.
Even then, however, victory is an appropriate description only in a narrow sense. The more Hizbollah advances in Syria, the more unstable its position at home. Attacks against it in Lebanon are increasing in scale and frequency, due directly to its support for Mr Al Assad.
