Two people were wounded on Friday as nine rockets fire from Syrian territory landed in the Bekaa city of Baalbek, shortly after Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah vowed in a speech to put an end to rocket attacks against the Baalbek-Hermel region.

“Five rockets fired from the Syrian side of the border fell on the Baalbek area of al-Kayyal,” state-run National News Agency reported.

It later said four more rockets hit the city, wounding two people.

The agency said the rockets fell in the areas of al-Kayyal, Adous intersection, al-Basatin and near the My College School, the house of Suleiman Ramadan and the house of Sheikh Hassan Shamas.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Syrian rebels “fired a Grad rocket on the Shiite Aleppo town of al-Fawaa, describing the shelling as a response to Nasrallah's speech.”

In his address, Nasrallah noted that “there is a delicate situation in the Baalbek-Hermel area -- which includes the rockets that are falling on the area -- that needs special care.”

“The sensitive point is that some media outlets are circulating rumors that these rockets are being fired from Arsal and its barren mountains -- they are accusing a Sunni town of shelling Shiites towns,” he said.

“And whenever a Arsal resident is killed or attacked, some politicians directly accuse Hizbullah. Some media outlets are spreading lies and I call on everyone to verify any report. I announce that the rockets were not fired from Arsal, but rather by the armed groups inside Syrian territory and God willing we will find a solution to this issue,” Nasrallah vowed.

Basita, Nasrallah will fund the repairs with his holy money from Qom.
