Elite Hezbollah fighters poured across the border from Lebanon into Syria today, bolstering Syrian regime forces battling to retake the key rebel stronghold of Qusayr.

Washington condemned Hezbollah's direct intervention on the side of President Bashar al-Assad's regime and diplomats said the European Union was poised to place the Shiite militant group's military wing on its terror blacklist.

Separately, Israeli and Syrian forces traded fire on the Golan Heights.

The Syrian army said it had destroyed an Israeli military vehicle that crossed the armistice line, a claim denied by Israel which nonetheless warned Damascus of "consequences" if there was further fire from the Syrian side.
