BEIRUT: At least one family member was wounded when a Syrian artillery shell struck a home in northern Lebanon early Wednesday, security sources said.

The sources told The Daily Star that other family members survived the 6 a.m. attack in the border village of Danka in northern Akkar.

They said the explosion appeared to have been accidental as heavy clashes raged in al-Zara and al-Hosn, villages on the Syrian side of the border with Lebanon.
