BEIRUT: Syrian warplanes were seen hovering above the border region before striking militant hideouts along the eastern frontier with Lebanon, the National News Agency said.

There were no reports of casualties or material damage.

Earlier this week, the Syrian regime fired missiles on Arsal's outskirts, hours after the Lebanese Army briefly clashed with gunmen from Syria who have infiltrated the porous border.
