HERMEL, Lebanon: Four rockets launched from Syria Monday hit several areas of northeast Lebanon, wounding one person and causing material damage, the Lebanese Army said.
Three of the rockets fell on the outskirts of the east Lebanon villages of Nabi Othman and Labweh while the fourth fell inside Labweh, the statement said.
A military expert is inspecting the areas where the rockets fell, the military said.
Security sources told The Daily Star earlier that the rockets were fired from the border area between Lebanon and Syria.
The rockets were likely fired from remote areas on the outskirts of the Bekaa Valley border town of Arsal, the sources said.
The fall Sunday of the previously rebel-held town of Yabroud to Syrian regime forces prompted a flow of gunmen to the mountainous outskirts of Arsal.
The Lebanese Army intensified border security in response.
