BEIRUT: The Nusra Front in Lebanon claimed responsibility for three rockets fired into Lebanon Wednesday, citing Hezbollah's role in Syria.
A security source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Daily Star one rocket hit the Bekaa Valley village of Nabi Sheet, which borders Syria.
On its twitter feed, the Al-Qaeda-linked group said it fired the rockets against the "party of Iran's strongholds in response to its massacres in greater Syria."
It vowed to carry out more "quality operations" against the group, urging soldiers in the Lebanese Army to defect and accusing it of working under the command of Hezbollah.
"To Lebanese Army members ... we tell them to recognize that the leaders of this Army ... cannot go against Hezbollah's decisions," the group said.
Addressing Sunnis in Lebanon, the group asked them to urge their sons to defect as well.
