BEIRUT: Three rockets from Syria hit separate areas in the Bekaa Valley Wednesday, causing material damage, a security source said.
The Nusra Front in Lebanon, an offshoot of the Al-Qaeda-linked radical group, claimed responsibility for the rocket attack.
The rockets landed in the outskirts of Har Taqla and Har Maaraboun, while one rocket landed in the outskirts of the Bekaa Valley town of Britel, the source added.
The last rocket damaged a quarry in the town.
The missiles were most likely fired from the Syrian border town of Rankous controlled by opposition forces, the source said.
On its Twitter feed, Nusra Front in Lebanon said the rockets were part of a series of vengeful attacks against Hezbollah, adding that the targeted towns were Britel and Nabi Sheet, where Hezbollah enjoys broad support.
