BEKAA, Lebanon: A Lebanese woman was wounded Thursday in Masharih al-Qaa, east Lebanon, by gunfire from the Syrian side of the border with Lebanon.

Khawla Suleiman al-Atrash, who was on a bus some 300 meters from the Lebanese-Syrian border, was struck in the waist by a bullet from the Syrian side of the border.

Atrash was transferred to a nearby hospital and her condition is stable.

There were no other reports of wounded.

According to witnesses on the bus, the incident coincided with the sounds of gunfire emanating from inside Syria.

The eastern area of Masharih al-Qaa has witnessed similar incidents in the past.

Last month, Syrian troops fired machine guns into a Bekaa border town during clashes between the Syrian army and rebel groups. There were no Lebanese casualties in the incident.

Last year the area also witnessed on several occasions incursions by the Syrian army.
