At least eight Lebanese and Syrians were injured on Tuesday after rockets hit several towns in Lebanon's northern district of Akkar from the Syrian side of the border, the state-run National News Agency reported.

NNA said the rockets hit at dawn the towns of al-Khwasleh and al-Nsoub in the area of Mount Akroum and Wadi Khaled.

The incident forced many families to flee their homes.

The residents of the border towns urged the Lebanese army to intervene to prevent similar incidents from taking place, NNA said.

Rockets from clashes between Syrian regime troops and rebels fighting to topple President Bashar Assad regularly land in Lebanese towns that lie near the border.
