Syrian rockets hit neighhbourhood in Lebanon's Hermel
Two rockets, apparently fired by Syrian rebels, slammed into a residential neighborhood in the eastern city of Hermel Sunday, the state-run National News Agency said.
It added that there was no immediate word on casualties or damage caused by the attack, the latest in a series of rocket salvoes fired by Syria rebels that targeted Hezbollah’s strongholds in Hermel and the other eastern Bekaa city of Baalbek in the past few weeks.
Syrian opposition groups have threatened to attack Hezbollah’s bastions and centers in the Bekaa region in response to the party’s military intervention in Syria.
Hezbollah fighters are aiding forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad in the more than two-year-old war against armed rebel groups seeking to topple the regime.
