BEIRUT: A Syrian warplane fired four missiles onto the outskirts of the northeastern Lebanese border town of Arsal Friday for the third day in a row, a security source told The Daily Star.
The source said the missiles landed in a remote area on Arsal’s edge, and that no casualties were reported.
Syria launched Thursday one missile into Arsal’s outskirts, just a day after launching a series of airstrikes targeting remote areas in the border town.
The mountainous region around Arsal, where the majority of the population supports rebels, has been used as smuggling route to arm Syrian rebels and transport fighters across the border.
The Lebanese town hosts a considerable population of Syrian refugees.
The strike came shortly after three rockets fired from Syria landed on the outskirts of two Bekaa Valley villages. There were no reports of causalities or material damages.
Two of the rockets fell on the outskirts of the village of Nabi Othman while the third landed near Labweh village, the source said.
The rockets were fired from the eastern mountain range that divides Lebanon from Syria.
