Syrians flee country amid fears of strikes

Lebanon-Syria border becomes busier than usual as Syrians prepare for possible foreign intervention.

    Thousands of Syrians have started stockpiling food and moving away from possible military targets, as fears over an attack by Western allies grow.

    Some are fleeing into neighbouring Lebanon, joining the more than one million Syrian refugees already there.

    Yet many Syrians believe that limited strikes will be of little use.
