BEIRUT: Ten missiles fired by Syrian warplanes Friday hit the outskirts of the Bekaa village of Tufail, the local mayor told The Daily Star.
According to the mayor, the air raids sparked panic among the residents but no casualties were recorded.
Similar incidents have occurred in Tufail. In July, a mother and her three children were wounded after their house was caught in the crossfire between Syrian regime forces and rebels.
Since the uprising began in Syria against President Bashar Assad’s rule, Lebanese border towns have continuously witnessed shelling from the Syrian side, damaging houses and sometimes resulting in casualties.
