Syrian Warplanes Stage Four Raids on Outskirts of Arsal

Syrian warplanes staged four raids on Wednesday on the outskirts of the border town of Arsal in northern Bekaa, the state-run National News Agency reported.

The area of Wadi Hmeid was targeted for the second time in less than two days.

The number of rockets that hit the area are still unknown.

On Monday, the area of Wadi Hmeid was targeted with four missiles.

The Syrian regime had also hit the areas of al-Ajram and Wadi al-Zaarour with six missiles.

The Army Command said in a statement that two rockets hit the public road between the towns of al-Labweh and al-Nabi Othman, lightly wounding a citizen and damaging a number of shops.

The mountainous area has long been a smuggling haven, with multiple routes into Syria that have been used since the conflict began in March 2011 to transport weapons and fighters.
