Latest reports from Syria say government forces have launched air raids right up to Lebanon's border town of Arsal. Observers say this is a significant advance in the Assad regime's drive to seal the Lebanese border and sever rebel supply lines. Earlier this week, Syria exchanged cross-border shelling with Israel. RFI spoke to Mona Yacoubian, a Middle East expert, about whether these attacks are likely to further escalate.
