A man was killed on Saturday in the northern village of Wadi Khaled by gunshots fired from Syria's side of the border, as Syrian shells have landed in al-Dbabiyeh and al-Noura towns of the northern district of Akkar, the National News Agency reported.
The NNA said that a state of rage and anger was felt in the north after Hussein Ismael's death.
It revealed: “An armed presence was also detected in the region”.
Ismael's body has reportedly been transferred to al-Salam Hospital in the town of Qobayat, according to the NNA.
Meanwhile, the agency also said that shells coming from the Syrian side of the border fell in al-Dbabiyeh and al-Noura towns of Akkar.
Since the eruption of Syria's clashes in 2011, Lebanon's northern cities have been witnessing several security incidents, the latest of which was in October 2012, when heavy Syrian gunfire targeted the border town of al-Abboudiyeh, forcing residents to flee the area en masse.
