Nine rockets fired from Syria hit barren areas in the Bekaa on Thursday, causing no casualties, a security source told Agence France Presse.
“Nine rockets launched from Syrian territory landed in the area between al-Qaa's barren mountains and Ras Baalbek” near the border with Syria, the source said.
The salvo caused no casualties as it struck barren areas, the source added.
Meanwhile, Lebanon's National News Agency said “two shells fell on the outskirts of the town of al-Qaa as an armed group was infiltrating Syrian territory.”
On Tuesday, six rockets fired from the Lebanese-Syrian border area struck the Hermel region in the Bekaa, leaving three people injured, including two soldiers. One of the rockets hit a Lebanese army barracks and the attack was jointly claimed by two jihadist groups – the Syria-based Marwan Hadid Brigades and a faction calling itself "al-Nusra Front in Lebanon."
