Syrian government air raids on the outskirts of Arsal killed a child and a teenager and wounded five others Friday, while seven rockets were fired from within Syria at the Lebanese border town of Brital.The Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), a radical Al-Qaeda-linked rebel group fighting in Syria, claimed responsibility for three of the rockets that hit Brital and the surrounding area, saying the group had targeted "the party of the devil's stronghold," a reference to Hezbollah. Brital is strongly associated with Hezbollah, which is fighting alongside regime forces in Syria, while Arsal is known for supporting the Syrian opposition.Less than three hours after the morning air raid, seven rockets fired from Syria landed in Brital.
