HERMEL, Lebanon: Six rockets from Syria landed on the outskirts of three villages in the northern Bekaa Valley Tuesday, security sources said, adding that no casualties were reported.
The rockets landed on the outskirts of the villages of Bazalieh, Amhaz and Labweh, causing only material damage.
The rockets were fired from the mountain range that divides Lebanon from Syria and all struck near residential areas, with one exploding in the garden of Sheikh Haidar al-Mawla in Labweh, the sources said.
The rockets caused anger among Labweh residents, prompting them to block the road passing through their village with burning tires and hurl stones at the cars of passing Arsal residents, the source said.
Army personnel soon dispersed the angry mob and reopened the road for motorists.
