Two Rockets from Eastern Mountain Range Target Brital

Rockets fired from the Eastern Mountain Range (on the Lebanese-Syrian border) targeted on Wednesday the northern Bekaa town of Brital, the state-run National News Agency reported.

According to NNA, a rocket targeted the outskirts of the town of Brital, while another one landed between Brital and al-Taybeh.

On Tuesday, eleven people were wounded when Syrian fighter jets shelled the outskirts of the town of Arsal in the eastern Bekaa region.

Syria-based rebel groups usually claim responsibility for such attacks, arguing that they come in retaliation to Hizbullah's military intervention in Syria.
