Rockets Fired from Syria Land in Hermel

Two rockets fired from inside Syria hit the eastern city of Hermel on Monday without causing casualties, a security source told Agence France Presse.

"Rockets fired from Syrian territory landed this afternoon on the city of Hermel, causing no injuries," the source said on condition of anonymity.

Eastern Lebanon has seen repeated rocket attacks in recent weeks.

Syrian rebels fighting pro-Assad troops just across the border have claimed some of these attacks, blaming Hizbullah for joining the fighting in Syria alongside loyalist forces.

Officially neutral in Syria's conflict, Lebanon is deeply divided into pro- and anti-Assad camps.

Hizbullah and its allies back Assad, while the opposition supports rebels seeking his ouster.
