The source declined to provide an exact number of who had fled to Syria.The source singled out Lebanese national Mohammad Iaali, known by the nom de guerre "Abo Baraa al Traboulsi," for his role in facilitating the transfer of extremist militants from Lebanon to Syria. Based in the countryside of Hama, north of Homs, Syria, Iaali arranges the logistics for militants to pass through the country to Raqqa.However, the source cited the recent attacks against the border village of Al-Qaa as indicative of new tactics being employed by terrorists.Last week, eight suicide bombers rocked the small, predominantly Christian village of Al-Qaa on the north-east border of Lebanon, leaving five people dead and more than 30 wounded.In June 2013, Assir's adherents clashed with the Army, leaving 18 Army soldiers and at least 40 militants dead.A security crackdown ended the fighting, resulting in the arrest of some 450 militants, a thousand arrest warrants being issued and some 11,000 police summons being delivered to suspects.
