Violence in the Syrian Civil War knows no borders and has spillover as far as away as Australia, where shooting and arson attacks have taken place.

A Melbourne-based nurse visited Syria twice to help with humanitarian efforts on behalf of rebels  and said her husband’s car had been firebombed and their hem shot at, the Australian reported Monday.

The nurse’s brother was killed in the war last year, and her husband’s car carries the emblem of the Syrian Free Army.

James Daoud, an opponent of the rebellion said he also has been threatened. He told the newspaper, “For the last one year we have seen a lot of attacks on the Shia. There have been a lot of attacks on Shia and Alawi businesses. We are also seeing boycotts of business.”

The head of the pro-rebel Australian Syrian Association, Mohammad Al-Hamwi, said he has received more than 23 threats on his mobile phone.
