Several women living in the Lebanese Christian village of al-Qaa have taken up arms following two waves of deadly suicide bombings on Monday.
News of the bombings shocked the border town, and authorities have warned Lebanon should brace itself for more potential attacks.
The bombings in al-Qaa took place in two waves, with one occurring before dawn on Monday, and the second later at night. The suicide bombers blew themselves up in the center of the village, near a church.
Located in the Shia Hermel region, where Hezbollah largely holds sway, Al-Qaa and the nearby Ras Baalbek are the only two villages with a Christian majority.
The Lebanese army arrested 103 Syrians in a security sweep following the attacks.
