Approximately 1,000 Syrian families have escaped to Lebanon in the last two days as fighting has increased in the town of Qarah on the Syrian-Lebanese border.

Syrian military has launched an offensive in an attempt to close an opposition supply route from Lebanon. Government forces appear to be trying to regain control of the whole border with the country.
