The secretary general of the Free Syria Army's military council warned that Syrian rebels will settle the score with Nasrallah and his group at court once the Syrian leader is deposed. 

The Free Syria Army has made some gains this week as the fighting intensifies in various parts of the country, including the neighborhoods outside of Damascus. In related chutzpadik boldness, five Iranian hostages who were accused of trying to violently put down dissent in the city of Homs were reportedly moved to Lebanon.
