3 New Rockets Hit Outskirts of Bekaa's al-Nabi Sheetإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Three Grad rockets fired from the Syrian side of the Eastern Mountain Belt landed Thursday in the hills of the Bekaa town of al-Nabi Sheet, state-run National News Agency reported.
The rockets which hit the al-Arid neighborhood did not cause any casualties, NNA said.
On Tuesday, three people were injured when rockets fired from Syria struck the al-Qantara area in al-Nabi Sheet's outskirts, which prompted President Michel Suleiman to reiterate his call for “the warring parties in Syria to neutralize Lebanese border towns and villages and from their shelling.”
On Saturday, rockets fired from Syria landed in the Bekaa regions of al-Hermel and al-Qaa.
The Qaida-inspired groups al-Nusra Front in Lebanon and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant usually claim responsibility for such attacks, arguing that they come in retaliation to Hizbullah's military intervention in Syria.
