The Assad regime escalated the spillover of the civil war Wednesday with a helicopter-mounted missile attack on a Sunni Muslim Lebanese urban center, wounding at least two people, including a schoolteacher.

It was the first time Syrian forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad have attacked a Lebanese city, having limited previous attacks to villages near the border.

Thousands of Syrian refugees have fled to Arsal, and the deployment of Lebanon-based Hezbollah fighters into Syria has fueled tension and violence in Lebanon.
