FILE -- In this Jan. 31, 2014, file photo, released by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), shows residents of the besieged Palestinian camp of Yarmouk, queuing to receive food supplies, in Damascus, Syria. In one besieged neighborhood after another, weary rebels have turned over their weapons to the Syrian government in exchange for an easing of suffocating blockades that have prevented food, medicine and other staples from reaching civilians trapped inside. The government touts the truces as part of its program of “national reconciliation” to end Syria’s crisis, which has killed more than 140,000 people since March 2011. (AP Photo/UNRWA, File)

In this picture taken on Wednesday, March 5, 2014, Bassel, 27, a Syrian rebel who was injured during an ambush by the Syrian government forces near Yabroud, the last rebel stronghold in Syria's mountainous Qalamoun region, lies on his bed at a makeshift hospital in the Lebanese-Syrian border town of Arsal, eastern Lebanon. Trucks of armed fighters rumble from this Lebanese Sunni town through the mountains to the front in Syria, where rebels are in a furious fight to keep a vital stronghold. At the same time, Lebanese Shiite fighters from a town not far away are also streaming in to join the battle _ but on the opposing side, backing Syrian government forces. The battle has effectively erased the border between the two countries and underlines how dangerously Lebanon is being sucked into its neighbor’s civil war. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
