BEIRUT: Twelve rockets from Syria landed near two villages in Baalbek Monday hours after Syrian jets bombed areas near the border with Lebanon, a security source told The Daily Star.
The rockets fired from Syria fell near Hor Taala and Brital, causing material damage, the source said, adding that there were no casualties.
Earlier in the day, Syrian jets fired around 12 missiles into the outskirts of the northeastern border town of Arsal.
Last week the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for three rockets which landed in Brital and damaged several houses, citing Hezbollah’s military role in Syria.
Brital is strongly associated with Hezbollah, which is fighting alongside regime forces in Syria, while Arsal is known for supporting the Syrian opposition.
The rocket attack on Brital last week came three hours after Syrian jets launched an air raid on Arsal.
