Syrian rockets hit Bekaa valley city in Lebanon
Two rockets fired Tuesday from Syrian territories exploded in the Bekaa border city of Hermel, only 200 meters away from a local hospital, security sources told The Daily Star.
They said there were no casualties from the morning attack.
The rockets, fired less than 30 minutes apart, fell near the privately-owned Assi Hospital in the eastern part of the city of Hermel.
The first rocket at 9:20 a.m. slammed into a house under construction, only 200 meters from the hospital. The house belongs to policeman Mehdi Shamas.
At 9:45 a.m., another rocket landed in an orchard owned by Adnan Murtada, which lies some 500 meters away from Assi Hospital, according to the sources.
