BEIRUT: Three rockets fired from Syria at the northeastern Lebanese town of Labweh killed a Syrian worker and wounded a Lebanese man Wednesday, security sources said.
The wounded man was identified as a Labweh resident from the Srour family, and the Syrian worker was identified as Mohammad Abbas, also known as Abu Nour. Two of the rockets, which also caused material damage, landed near the town cemetery, the sources said.
The third landed near a shop on the main road, they added. The attack was claimed by militant group Liwaa Ahrar al-Sunna-Baalbek.
Similar attacks against mainly Shiite areas associated with Hezbollah have previously been claimed by Islamist groups linked to the Syrian opposition.
