BEIRUT: Four shells fired from Syria struck the outskirts of the Lebanese border town Al-Qaa Tuesday, in the Bekaa Valley, security sources told The Daily Star.

The sources said the rockets, which fell on the foothills of Mzar al-Sayydeh, were fired in the afternoon and added that there were no reported casualties.

Mzar al-Sayydeh is located some 1,500 meters away from Al-Qaa, a small town with an estimated population of 10,000 Lebanese Christians.

Lebanon has been repeatedly struck by shells coming from Syria along the border as battles intensify between regime troops and rebels.
