Two Syrian nationals were killed on Friday and and five other people wounded in five air raids staged by the Syrian regime on the outskirts of the eastern border town of Arsal.

Media reports said that the raid targeted the Wadi al-Ajram area, 7 kilometers into the Lebanese depth.

The state-run National News Agency reported that the Syrian jets targeted militants in Wadi al-Zumrani, Wadi Ata and Wadi al-Ajram.

A Syrian family, comprised of a father and three children, was passing in the area when the raid took place.

NNA said that the injured were transferred to al-Rahma field hospital in Arsal.

The five wounded people sustained minor injuries.

The army later issued a communique confirming the air raids without providing any details.

“At 8:55 am and 10:15 am Syrian warplanes targeted several border areas in the outskirts of Arsal,” the army said.

Arsal, near the border with Syria, is a Sunni town where residents support the rebels fighting President Bashar Assad's forces. The town also hosts tens of thousands of Syrian refugees.

Ever since the Syrian revolt erupted in March 2011, Arsal has become a key conduit for refugees and wounded people fleeing strife-torn Syria.

god bless you jerry you gave the best acknowledgement to Hezb
cause by fighting Israel he is respecting Lebanon sovereignty and honor
the only heros in Lebanon are the ones who fought the Syrian when they were occupying Lebanon because these heros respected the honor and sovereignty of Lebanon
but the people like you worked with the Syrian occupation are traitors
and should be hanged
