HERMEL, Lebanon: Rocket fire from Syria into east Lebanon’s Baalbek region wounded one person over the weekend, a security source said.
The Lebanese Army said in a statement Saturday that three 107-mm rockets were fired at 6 p.m. from Syria into the eastern Labweh town in the Bekaa Valley.
The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said a man from the al-Khozaal family suffered minor wounds when one of the rockets fell into his garden in Jabbouleh.
The rocket also caused a fire in a nearby valley and damaged the house of a man from the al-Mawlah family, the source added.
The two other rockets fell onto a road in Zboud and on the outskirts of town Labweh, the source said.
The Bekaa Valley has become a frequent target of rocket attacks in recent months as the fighting between regime forces and rebels intensify in Syria.
