Syrian jets fired shells at the eastern Bekaa region of Arsal on Sunday, reported the National News Agency.

It said that they targeted Syrian gunmen in Wadi al-Khail in Arsal.

Four shells struck the region.

The Lebanese army confirmed air strikes in "border areas" but made no mention of their target.

Earlier, NNA said that the jets fired rockets at al-Rahwa region on the outskirts of the border town.

On Friday, two Syrians were killed and five other people wounded in five air raids staged by the Syrian regime on the outskirts of Arsal.

Media reports said that the raid targeted militants in Wadi al-Zumrani, Wadi Ata and Wadi al-Ajram.

Arsal, near the border with Syria, is a Sunni town where residents support the rebels fighting Syrian 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.

Bassil ! How is it being the foreign minister of the hijacked republic of Syria ?

Did you officially declare war on Lebanon or your daily bombings are just firework displays for the Mondial ?
