Syrian troops advanced into north Lebanon on Tuesday, destroying farm building and clashing with Syrian rebels who had taken refuge there, residents said.

"More than 35 Syrian soldiers came across the border and started to destroy houses," said Abu Ahmed, 63, a resident of the rural mountain area of al-Qaa.

Another resident said that the soldiers, some travelling in armoured personnel vehicles, fired rocket-propelled grenades and exchanged heavy machinegun fire with rebels.
