Baalbek: Lebanon`s army used its anti-aircraft defence systems to fire at Syrian helicopters after they carried out a raid in Lebanese territory on Monday, a military source said.

It was the first time the Lebanese army has responded to Syrian attacks inside Lebanese territory, which have multiplied as the conflict in Syria spills over the border between the countries.
