Militants in Syria shell Lebanese border areas
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - According to Alalam reporter, the first rocket landed in the Shawageer town near Hermel and a few minutes later, three more rockets fell near the Assi Bridge at one of the entrances to Hermel.
No causalities have been reported in the rocket attacks.
Border areas between Lebanon and Syria have been tense in the past months, with militants in Syria targeting Lebanese villages by firing rockets which have left several casualties.
Syria has been struggling with a western-backed insurgency which began in March 2011 as a protesting movement but turned to be a cover for terrorist groups including al-Qaeda and al-Nusra Front.
