Four rockets landed Wednesday evening in several northern Bekaa towns after being reportedly fired from the Eastern Mountain Range which straddles the Lebanese-Syrian border.
According to state-run National News Agency, the rockets hit the outskirts of the towns of al-Bzaliyeh, Hrabta and al-Labweh.
Voice of Lebanon radio (93.3) said the projectiles were fired from the Eastern Mountain Belt.
Al-Labweh's municipal chief confirmed to Sky News Arabia that three rockets had fallen on the town "without causing casualties."
Later on Wednesday, the Lebanese Army issued a statement confirming that "four rockets landed in the outskirts of the towns of al-Bzaliyeh and Hrabta after being fired from the Eastern Mountain Belt, causing no casualties."
"Army forces immediately staged patrols in the targeted area as a military expert inspected the impact site," the statement added.
Clashes have been taking place since more than a week between Hizbullah fighters and others from the Syrian opposition in the Eastern Mountain Range, which has left dozens of combatants dead.
The fighting has spread several times to the peripheries of the Bekaa town of Arsal, where the Lebanese Army has thwarted infiltration attempts by gunmen.
