Warning!

The escalating war in Israel and the Palestinian Territories has unsettled the whole region and the possibility remains that the conflict may spread. Syrian-backed Hezbollah guerillas in southern Lebanon have been exchanging fire with Israeli troops along the border. Although Syria says Lebanon dose not intend to 'open a new front' the situation remains volatile.
