Mortar Shells Fired from Syria Hit Outskirts of Akkar Villages

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Mortar shells fired from war-torn Syria hit overnight the outskirts of the towns of al-Dbabiyeh, al-Noura and Kuishra in in the northern district of Akkar, the state-run National News Agency reported on Thursday.

According to NNA, the shelling didn't cause any casualties.

The almost three-year long violence in Syria has increasingly spilled over into Lebanon, with cross-border shelling in the north and east.

Mortars and shells from the Syrian side regularly crash in Lebanon, causing several casualties. But Lebanese forces have never fired back despite promises of retaliation.

Syrian authorities had threatened to attack Lebanese territories if “terrorists” continue to infiltrate the country from Lebanon.

Lebanese parties are sharply divided over the developments in Syria despite the dissociation policy that was adopted by the state.

So exactly when is Lebanon going to complain to the UN or at least UNIFIL will regards the cross-border military activities? Or doesn't the government in Beirut regard this as an international border?

as for the random shells being fired, it is in all likelihood an attempt by syrian rebels to boost their recruitment of lebanese in akkar

Here you go again. Anyone not agreeing with you must be an Israeli.
Get your head out of the sand and begin looking around as to what is happening to your country.

But surely, it is not the people who have to place the complaint, but the government, or dies it also not consider this area Lebanese?
If so, why does Naharnet report on Syrian shells falling in Syrian territory?
