Syria closes Lebanese borders?

I heard late last night that Syria had closed its borders, but an-Nahar is reporting that of this morning, it was just the Northern border and not the Maasna border, which is on the road connecting Beirut and Damascus.

It always makes me nervous when the roads to Syria are bombed, like last summer, or when the borders are closed, because it totally cuts off the country and leaves just one way out, the airport. Last summer, the airport was the first thing the Israelis hit, and on numerous occasions, Hezbollah has blocked the road to it from Beirut.

Sometimes I forget how easily one can get stuck in or out of this country…
