HERMEL, Lebanon: Three rockets fired from Syria on the northeast Lebanon town of Labweh Wednesday killed a Syrian worker and wounded a Lebanese man, security sources said.
The wounded man was identified as a Labweh resident from the Srour family.
The National News Agency identified the Syrian worker as Mohammad Abbas, also known as Abu Nour.
Two of the rockets, which caused material damage, landed near the town cemetery, the sources said.
The third rocket landed at the town’s main road near a commercial store, they added.
The attack was claimed by the militant group Liwaa Ahrar al-Sunna-Baalbek, which referred to the town as a "Hezbollah stronghold."
Previous such attacks against predominantly-Shiite towns and villages commonly associated with Hezbollah have been claimed by Islamist groups linked to the armed Syrian opposition, citing Hezbollah's role in the Syrian war.
